Marquess Wilson has some more competition in his quest to become the Bears' No. 3 wide receiver this season. Chicago signed 28-year-old wideout Josh Morgan on Monday to a one-year contract. Morgan has spent six seasons in the league, the last two with the Redskins. He caught a career-high 48 passes in 2012. He has never topped 700 receiving yards in any year.
Bears wide receiver Marquess Wilson was a seventh-round pick in last year's draft. He played in nine games and caught two passes as a rookie. But Brandon Marshall wants everyone out there to know that Wilson is not your usual seventh-rounder
"I really want to talk about Marquess Wilson," Marshall said in a recent interview with CBSSports.com. "He came down and trained with us the whole offseason. We're really looking for him to do some big things. This guy, he's probably the steal of the draft last year. I'm going to say that. He came in, he put in the work, he looks like a body builder. Fast, strong, explosive. I'm looking forward to seeing him in OTAs."
Via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said Tuesday that he envisions his top two running backs, Reggie Bush and Joique Bell, "kind of having a split role" this season.
