The Bears might not have their first-round pick under contract as they begin camp, but they should have their high-profile free agent acquisition on the field.
Via Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Bears coach Matt Nagy said he didn’t think any of his players would need to start camp on the physically unable to perform list.
That means that wide receiver Allen Robinson should be ready to go, which is good news for a revamped offense.
An instinctual playmaker who lurks as a constant takeaway threat for opposing quarterbacks and ballcarriers, Johnson will head the back end of what should be another smothering Hurricanes defense despite major turnover on the line, including the losses of draft picks Chad Thomas, Kendrick Norton and R.J. Mcintosh. Whether or not Johnson gets to wear the turnover chain as many times as he did last season, Miami will need his production and leadership as it tries to take the final steps it couldn’t last fall.
