his summer the Bears plan to continue giving their defensive linemen reps at multiple positions in training camp as they’ve done in the past.

The versatility that creates should help them replace nose tackle Eddie Goldman, who has opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19.

Defensive line coach Jay Rodgers told the media last week that returning veterans Bilal Nichols, John Jenkins, Abdullah Anderson and Brent Urban all will take some reps at nose tackle in training camp.

“We’d like to have options,” Defensive Line Coach Jay Rodgers said. “What you’d like to have is the best two, three, four guys out there on the field that you could possibly put out there with the ability to substitute when you need to and not have any drop-off. So we’re going to continue to train everybody at every position.”
