Chicago Tribune - [Full Article]

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune believes that Bears WR Earl Bennett could have a breakout season following the trade acquisition of Brandon Marshall this offseason.

"Bennett seems poised for a breakout season," Biggs said. "He got a big pay day last season when the Bears signed him to a four-year extension, with $9 million guaranteed, Dec. 2. Bennett has more flexibility to play inside now and he has proven tough over the middle even though he missed five games after a big hit from Saints safety Roman Harper in Week 2 a year ago. He's elusive enough to get deep down the seams and could put it all together in his fifth season."

Bennett averaged a career-high 15.9 yards per catch last season but played in just 11 games due to injuries and caught a career-low 24 passes for 381 yards and one touchdown.
