Bears move training camp to Halas Hall

Bears move training camp to Halas Hall

The Bears are moving training camp to Halas Hall in 2020, the team announced Tuesday.

"We will host training camp practices at Halas Hall in 2020 while maintaining a public component to many of the sessions to incorporate our loyal and passionate fans," said Bears president and CEO Ted Phillips.

The decision to move training camp to Halas Hall ends an 18-year run at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais. It's the first of many potential changes this offseason in an effort to right what went wrong in 2019 when the Bears finished well below expectations at 8-8. 

The biggest change may be at quarterback, where Mitch Trubisky is expected to be in a training camp battle -- at least, he should be -- for the starting job. Even if the Bears don't launch a full-blown quarterback competition, every pass by Trubisky and whoever ends up as No. 2 on the depth chart will be compared and contrasted throughout the summer.

The Bears parted ways with wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, releasing him and cornerback Prince Amukamara on Friday.

Gabriel, who played two seasons with the Bears, took to Twitter to thank the fans and the city of Chicago as a whole for his time with the squad. His kind message came attached to video clips of two of Gabriel's six receiving touchdowns as a Bear.

Over his two years and 25 games with the Bears, Gabriel racked up 96 receptions, 1,041 yards, and 6 touchdowns.

The Chicago Bears released veteran cornerback Prince Amukamara on Friday in a move that was expected in order to free up salary-cap space in advance of free agency this March.

By moving on from Amukamara, the Bears will have an additional $9 million to spend on the open market, which could ultimately be used on his replacement. It could also be shifted to other positions of need along the offensive line or on that pesky veteran quarterback who's sure to rile up the fan base.

There's also the Allen Robinson contract extension that eventually needs to get hammered out.

The good news for Chicago is there are several viable options who will be available in free agency and the NFL draft that can replace Amukamara in the starting lineup. Here's a look at five of them:
