Are Cutler, Marshall open to reuniting?

Are Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall trying to get the band back together?

The two had a dynamic connection in Denver, as Marshall put up three straight seasons of 100-plus receptions and at least 1,100 yards and six TDs.

Marshall has since played the last two seasons in Miami while Cutler has become the Bears' franchise quarterback.

Saturday, the two took to Twitter in what may be an effort at reuniting.

Not sure what Marshall's original tweet is referencing, but he did send it out during the NFL playoff games Saturday, so it may have been in reference to that.

Given that, it could be Marshall was referencing the Lions' Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, a dynamic duo in Detroit that put up big numbers all season, including in the team's playoff loss Saturday.

Love to see Cutler's confidence there.

A fan got in on the action and it's probably safe to say a lot of people in Chicago would welcome Marshall with open arms to the Bears. Cutler definitely needs help at receiver and Marshall's Dolphins are currently in the midst of quarterback issues.

The holdup is Marshall's contract, as he is currently signed in Miami through the 2014 season. A trade would be the only way for the Pro Bowl wide receiver to land in Chicago.

Mitch Trubisky jersey sales trending in right direction

Mitch Trubisky jersey sales trending in right direction

Positive press about the Chicago Bears' offseason is having a strong impact on the jersey sales for the team's highest-profile player, Mitch Trubisky.

According to Dick's Sporting Goods, Trubisky's No. 10 is the fifth-most popular jersey among offensive players over the last 30 days. He's No. 6 among all players, regardless of position.

The Bears' offseason has been full of superlatives since their aggressive approach to free agency. The signings of Allen Robinson, Trey Burton and Taylor Gabriel put the spotlight on Trubisky and the potentially surging passing game. The second-round selection of Anthony Miller and word of Kevin White's offseason emergence has turned positive momentum into higher-than-anticipated expectations for Trubisky this season.

For Chicago to have any chance at meeting those expectations, Trubisky, who's entering his first full season as a starter with a new head coach and offensive system, has to thrive. Fans must be confident that he will, considering the investment they're making in his jersey.

Trubisky ended his rookie season with four wins in 12 starts, throwing for 2,193 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. He completed 59.4 percent of his passes. He should have a much more productive season in 2018 with his new arsenal of skill players and an innovative coaching staff, led by coach Matt Nagy and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.

These four Bears will be featured on 'Meet the Rookies' series

The Chicago Bears will kick off the fourth season of "Meet the Rookies" on June 25, a series that profiles four of the team's 2018 draft picks for a behind-the-scenes look at their journey to the NFL.

The four-episode series will air on ChicagoBears.com at 7:00 p.m from June 25 - 28 and will feature one rookie per night. 

Monday's episode will cover the Bears' first-round pick, Roquan Smith. Selected with the eighth-overall pick, Smith is expected to become an instant-impact player on defense. He's expected to make an impact off the field, too, as a high-character leader. Smith's linebacker-mate Joel Iyiegbuniwe is the focus of Tuesday's episode, with Anthony Miller (Wednesday) and James Daniels (Thursday) rounding out Season 4.
