Bear Down, Chicago Bears
Who will be joining the Bears this year? With only six selections in this year’s NFL Draft, they’ll have to choose wisely today with their two second-round picks. Whoever the Bears select, those players will become part of a storied history going back a century.
Take a look back at 100 years of the Bears, from their early days as the Decatur Staleys to their move from Wrigley Field to Soldier Field, from mid-century struggles to drafting Walter Payton in 1975 and their 1985 Super Bowl victory during the Ditka decade. See more.
