John Fox admits the Chicago Bears are struggling for players

The Chicago Bears haven't had a bad off-season or free agency period at all.

The Bears have managed to bring in former Giants safety Antrell Rolle, pass rusher Pernell McPhee and wide receiver Eddie Royal who was last at the San Diego Chargers.

But head coach John Fox is still worried. The new man in charge in Chicago - having been hired as Marc Trestman's replacement - spoke at the weekend and revealed that the Bears roster still has a lot of work needing doing.

"We have a lot of needs," Fox told the Chicago Tribune upon arrival at the Annual League Meeting in Phoenix. "There are still a lot of green rectangles on a board."

Green rectangles are obviously a bad thing. They're areas of the team that needs new players, and more than likely they are starters that Fox, the former Broncos head coach, still needs to find.

Luckily for Fox however, there is still a portion of free agency left - not to mention the draft - and the 60-year old is looking at those players left in free agency to try and find his missing pieces.

There are still two pools of players. There are still a lot of guys left in (secondary) free agency, which I prefer dealing with anyways, not the jump-out-in-front (signings). When you get it going good, you don't have to do that."

So Bears fans, things may not be looking good but it's not time to panic just yet, well that's if you believe what Fox is saying.
