Eddie Jackson Receives Four-Year Extension

The Chicago Bears agreed to terms on a four-year extension worth $58.4 million with safety Eddie Jackson on Friday, according to his agents. He'll receive $33 million in total guarantees and $22 million fully guaranteed. The $14.6 yearly average is the highest at his position. The 26-year-old fourth-round pick out of Alabama in 2017 has become one of the best safeties in the NFL with the Bears. In his three seasons, Jackson has 184 total tackles (147 solo), two sacks, four forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, 10 interceptions and three touchdowns. He'll be a building block for Chicago's strong defense for years to come.

Anthony Miller Will Undergo Surgery

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace announced on Tuesday that wide receiver Anthony Miller (shoulder) will need surgery on his left shoulder, and it will keep him out until training camp next year. Miller had surgery on the same shoulder last January as well, so it's something to watch moving forward. The second-round pick in 2018 predictably fell back down to Earth in his sophomore season after scoring seven touchdowns in his rookie year. Miller came out of the gates super slow in 2019, but he rebounded in the second half and was granted more opportunities with Taylor Gabriel (concussion) sidelined. He should enter 2020 firmly entrenched as the No. 2 behind Allen Robinson, but Miller's fantasy upside is limited with Mitch Trubisky not displaying much under center.

Bears Plan For Mitch Trubisky To Start In 2020

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace announced that the team's plan is for quarterback Mitch Trubisky to be the starting QB in 2020. The Bears will likely look for a signal-caller in next year's draft, but they have no choice really but to give Trubisky one last shot to prove that he's a franchise quarterback. The 25-year-old took a notable step backwards in 2019, going 326-for-516 (63.2 percent) for 3,138 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He's proven to be nothing more than a game manager so far in his three seasons in Chicago, and he'll enter the 2020 season as a low-end QB2 for fantasy owners. Trubisky's leash could be very short.

Trey Burton, Roquan Smith Undergo Surgeries

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace revealed on Tuesday that tight end Trey Burton (hip) and linebacker Roquan Smith (pectoral) recently underwent surgeries. Burton played in just eight games this year and was placed on Injured Reserve with a calf injury. He's caught only 68 passes with six touchdowns (all in 2018) in his two seasons with Chicago after spending three years with the Eagles. It's unknown if Burton will be back in 2020, but even if he is, he won't be attractive to fantasy owners, even as a fantasy backup. Adam Shaheen could wind up stealing more playing time if Burton continues to underwhelm. Smith played in just 12 games in 2019 but still had 101 tackles (66 solo), two sacks and an interception.

Bears Part Ways With Offensive Coordinator

The Chicago Bears dismissed offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, tight ends coach Kevin Gilbride, offensive line coach Harry Hiestand and assistant special teams coach Brock Olivo on Tuesday. With quarterback Mitch Trubisky taking a step backwards in 2020, Helfrich gets the axe. The Bears finished with 296.8 yards per game (fourth worst) and 17.5 points per game (also fourth worst in the NFL) under Helfrich and head coach Matt Nagy. The Bears will give Trubisky one last chance to prove he belongs under center as a starter in 2020, but they won't wait forever if he starts the year off slow. Chicago's pass-catchers -- Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller -- could be held hostage if the Bears situation under center becomes a rotating carousel next year.
