Bears happy with what they have at the safety spot

Despite what seems to be a need for safeties on the team, National Football Post reports that the Bears are happy with what they have at that position:

The Chicago Bears are going to see what the draft brings them next week before exploring alternate options for help in the secondary. That is essentially what general manager Jerry Angelo announced on the team’s Web site this morning, saying that the Bears did consider a veteran free safety but they “didn’t feel the timing was right.” “Right now we would be comfortable starting with the present cast of players at the position,” Angelo announced. “Certainly it’s a much talked about position. I’m talking about the safeties and the corners, and we’re going to look hard at that. We did sign Tim Jennings, a young player with talent that has familiarity with the scheme. We looked at a veteran safety, but we felt that we wanted to pass on that. So we’ll just wait and see. Again, you’re not going to field a Pro Bowler at every position, and you don’t have to. The players that we presently have we feel good about. But we always want to create competition and better depth.”

    They will draft a corner and convert him or use the first pick on a true free safety. There do seem to be an abundance of corners that will fit the Cover 2 Free Safety position.
