Most NFL teams keep five or six receivers, and the Bears are unlikely to go beyond six. Devin Hester and Earl Bennett are locks to start. Rookies Juaquin Iglesias and Johnny Knox also look secure. The Bears won't be able to hide them on the practice squad because Iglesias has a big name and reputation and Knox would be claimed purely for his 40 time.

Tall receivers Brandon Rideau and Devin Aromashodu have been Cutler's favorite targets during spots in training camp. Aromashodu made a spectacular diving catch Saturday to set up a touchdown pass to Desmond Clark. That will help him a ton, but it also begs the question of whether Rashied Davis, Rideau, Iglesias or Knox would have made the same play if given the chance.

Rashied Davis hasn't lost repetitions only to the taller guys. In some formations in practice, Hester and tight end Greg Olsen have been split wide with Bennett in the slot -- a natural position for Davis.
