5 things we learned from Chicago Bears assistant coaches

CHICAGO - The Chicago Bears made 13 of their assistant coaches available to the media this week, a Zoom Q&A binge that offered progress reports on key players and insight into the team's plans for 2020. The virtual interview sessions provided an introduction to new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor; insight into what new quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo will be looking for; and high praise for how the defense will benefit from the pairing of pass rushers Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn.

Here are five other things we learned from Bears assistants.

1. Rookie cornerback Jaylon Johnson will have to prove himself when practice resumes at training camp.

It's probably a matter of when, not if, Johnson will claim a starting role in the Bears defense. But the second-round pick out of Utah won't have a clear-cut path to becoming a Week 1 starter. The Bears are expecting an intense competition for the second starting cornerback role, a battle that will challenge Johnson to outplay Kevin Toliver, Artie Burns and Tre Roberson.
