BREAKING: After Caleb Williams had a difficult OTA season, the Bears sign an All-Star to add to their offensive weaponry…

Give the Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles credit; he’s going above and above to ensure the quarterback he selected with the top overall choice in the draft has a successful rookie season. After OTAs in June, the Bears added another offensive weapon.

This spring, Caleb Williams is having trouble.

Williams reportedly had an excellent arm at OTAs in May and June, according to several reports. He has begun to improve his consistency throughout the 7-on-7 practice.

But Williams hasn’t performed well in the pre-snap offence, and he’s even having trouble snapping the ball at mandatory minicamp. Additionally, he has had difficulty when Williams is navigating the pass rush in 11-on-11 situations.

This spring, the Bears acquired wide receiver Keenan Allen, a six-time Pro Bowler, after a trade with the Los Angeles Chargers. D’Andre Swift, a running back just signed by the Philadelphia Eagles, is coming off a Pro Bowl season. Rome Odunze was also selected by the Bears with the ninth overall pick.

An All-Pro tight end was signed by the Chicago Bears.

Marcedes Lewis will return to the Bears for the 2024 season, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports. He spent the 2023 season as a player for the Bears.

Lewis will support Williams’ protection on the offensive line.

In Chicago, Lewis enjoyed a respectable season. He participated in every game (17 total), starting four of them. Lewis, who is 39 years old, performed exceptionally well when used mostly as a blocking tight end.

Last season, Lewis received a 71.1 grade, according to Pro Football Focus. Additionally, he hauled in four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Lewis was chosen by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft. Prior to signing with the Bears during the previous offseason, he was a member of the Green Bay Packers.

Lewis will provide the Bears with another vital Williams blocker. Williams needs to feel secure in the pocket as a rookie. Lewis is able to assist with that. Occasionally, he can be used as a pass to confuse the defence.
