Well, my concerns didn’t last for long. Immediately after writing of my concern of right tackle J’Marcus Webb’s issues and lack of improvement at right tackle, we’ve learned that Webb was demoted to the second team and replaced by rookie Jordan Mills.
Mills, a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft, is slated to practice the majority of the week with the first team, although nothing is set in stone. It’s always a little sketchy with having two rookies along the offensive line — especially on the same side with Kyle Long likely to secure that right guard role. But the Bears needed to do something about the hole that Webb was creating at right tackle and it appears they’re willing to try whatever necessary.
