Per Albert Breer, the Bears have 'big plans' for Eddie Royal.
Royal got off to a fast start in his first year, catching 91 passes for 980 yards and five touchdowns while Jay Cutler was throwing for a career-high 4,526 yards en route to the only Pro Bowl appearance of his career.
It was the only year that the two men worked together, but both remember it fondly and Royal says they’re putting in the same work now that they did then to build the same chemistry.
Royal could create headaches for Kevin White (and perhaps Alshon Jeffery) owners. He has a tendency to either explode or disappear, and that makes it difficult to predict the distribution of production in any passing offense in which he plays.

Jay Cutler - Week 17 vs. Minnesota
Well this is awkward. The Chicago Bears benched Jay Cutler last week in favor of Jimmy Clausen. Well, as fate would have it Clausen suffered a concussion and has been ruled out for Week 17. Welcome, back Jay!
Cutler hadn't been playing well in terms of actual football, but he wasn't a terrible fantasy option. He had six games with at least 280 yards passing and had multiple touchdowns in all but four games.
This week he faces a Minnesota defense he played well against in Week 11. In that game he completed 72 percent of his passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns. Typically the Vikings' defense is a little tougher than that.
The Bears clearly don't have a lot of confidence in Cutler and this week they aren't playing for anything. Cutler should be viewed as a QB2.
