Taking this set of Bullets on the road. Thanks to Brett and Michael for holding things down for me while I was at the Indy 500. It was quite the experience, to say the least.
- It’s Memorial Day, so allow yourself some time to reflect, remember, and respect:

- Happy highlights: The best play from every year of Brian Urlacher’s Hall of Fame career.
- Some perspective regarding Kevin White’s tone while answeringreer questions from the media last week via Pro Football Weekly’s Bob LeGere, who notes White has basically had to answer the same questions the last three years.
- Questions about White’s injury history have piled up since he missed his rookie year and haven’t gone away. It makes sense that White’s answers are short because what is there to say that hasn’t already been said? What is there to detail when there isn’t much to explain? White’s injury history is unfortunate because there is talent bubbling under the surface, but it has yet to show itself on the field. It stinks. And while it’s easy to pile up on White, you might find it even easier to pull for what can easily be painted as an underdog/redemption story for a player who has had nothing but bad luck since being drafted.
- Kevin White’s college tape was fun:
BONUS: # 11 WR Kevin White, Matt Nagy said that he looks at getting something out of him as a personal challenge. He stated that he will do everything he can to put him in a position to be successful. Nagy was impressed with White on his first impression with the new head coach pic.twitter.com/rHN4H8AlPR

- Theres something about the idea of Tarik Cohen being one of the Bears’ better receivers tickles my fancy:
Tarik Cohen was a big-time receiving weapon for the Bears as a rookie. pic.twitter.com/8GAB0LBkx4

- Even with Cohen and Jordan Howard at the top of the depth chart, a small part of me is still a bit surprised the Bears didn’t draft a running back. Not that there was a pressing need at the position, but we know how quickly depth at that spot can deteriorate. A deep class at running back should yield some immediate contributors, and NFL.com Senior Analyst Gil Brandt tries to predict the seven most successful rookies at the position this coming year — including four who will square up against the Bears defense.
- David Johnson is no rookie, but you can add him to the list of talented running backs the Bears will be responsible for bringing down this season. Based on his skill set, I can see him doing big things in 2018, and so can Bucky Brooks:
Could @DavidJohnson31 be the first player since 1985 to have 1000 rush yards AND 1000 yards receiving?
"I think he absolutely can do it."

- Ever wonder what a team of the highest-paid players at each position would look like? Well, look no further.

- Put a pin in this: Chase Goodbread offers up 18 NFL Draft prospects on the defensive side of the ball from the class of 2019 who will shine once they take the leap from college. It’s way too early to think about prospects in that light, but it’s always nice to have players on your radar worth keeping an eye on.
