Recapping "We The Fans" episodes 3 & 4

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bears began Phase 1 of their voluntary offseason workout program on Tuesday at Halas Hall. Storylines to monitor include: 1. Mike Glennon's command of the offense; 2. The health of the Bears offensive line, notably at guard, where Kyle Long and Josh Sitton battled injuries much of last season; and 3. The continued development of OLB Leonard Floyd, who registered 7 sacks last year as a rookie.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Picking in the top three of the NFL draft for the first time since 1972, the Bears could stand to add a defensive playmaker. No Bear finished top 20 in the NFL in tackles, sacks or interceptions last season.
