The Chicago Bears have an interesting season ahead of them in 2015.
The Bears have undergone a fair bit of turnover both on and off the field, with a new coaching staff in place as John Fox becomes head coach with Adam Gase as his offensive coordinator.
On the offense, Brandon Marshall was traded to the New York Jets while Alshon Jeffery has been promoted to number one receiver. Behind him is Kevin White, the rookie out of West Virginia.
And it seems that White has been catching the eye of his elder, Jeffery, in organized team activities. Jeffery spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times where he revealed that White has been showing out so far.
“He’s a great player,” Jeffery said, via Patrick Finley. “He’s an explosive player. We can’t wait for the season. What he’s going to do on the field is going to be great.”
Last year, three different rookie receivers — Odell Beckham, Kelvin Benjamin and Mike Evans — had 1,000-yard seasons as rookies. If White is ready to have that kind of rookie year this season, it would go a long way toward turning the Bears’ offense around. Jeffery thinks that White is capable of exactly that.
White continues to adjust to the NFL with each practice. The Bears’ first-round rookie receiver acknowledged his ongoing mental challenges Wednesday afternoon after the Bears’ ninth organized team activity of the spring.
“I’m hard on myself a lot,” White said. “I just don’t want one play to beat me up twice. That’s what I’ve got to get better at.”
