Chicago Bears: linebackers
It's hard to remember the last time linebacker wasn't considered a strength of the Bears' defense. With all the player movement in the NFL, the Bears have experienced little turnover at linebacker, essentially relying on five players over the last eight seasons: Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, Nick Roach, Hunter Hillenmeyer and Pisa Tinoisamoa -- Jamar Williams, Geno Hayes and Blake Costanzo also made occasional contributions but nothing sustained over a long period of time.
