Per team sources, the Bears plan on moving offensive lineman Chris Williams back to tackle after a two-year stint as the starting left guard. With uncertainty surrounding both second-year right tackle Gabe Carimi due to his injury recovery and the struggles of left tackle J’Marcus Webb, the Bears needed more depth and assurance on the end of the line. Plus, the Bears brought in veteran Chilo Rachal to bolster a sturdy group of guards.
