Bennett's departure would leave the Bears without two of their top offensive players from the past several seasons, as Matt Forte left the team via free agency earlier this offseason.

Bennett spent three seasons with the Bears, appearing in 43 games and catching 208 passes for 2,114 yards and 14 touchdowns. He made the Pro Bowl in 2014, when he caught 90 passes for 916 yards and six touchdowns.

Just Monday, the Bears signed tight end Zach Miller to a two-year contract.

Khalil Mack is now sacking quarterbacks without using EITHER hand

Hello! It's Sunday, which means you're due a video of Khalil Mack sacking a quarterback without using any of the things a pash rusher would normally use, like, say, arms:

The one arm routine was getting old, I guess? 

Tune in next week when Mack gets to the QB using like his toes or a deep breath or something.

WATCH: Jordan Howard goes untouched for 9-yard touchdown vs. Packers

The Bears’ running game had little trouble getting off the ground against the Packers.

Early on in the first quarter, Jordan Howard got into a rhythm, and his offensive line was instrumental in paving the way.

Matt Nagy stuck to the running game to start, and Howard capped off their second drive with what looked like his easiest touchdown run of the season.

Howard was essentially untouched as he ran between the blocks of Charles Leno Jr. and James Daniels, right up the middle to the endzone.

Coming off of his best game of the season against the Los Angeles Rams, Howard seems to have picked up where he left off at Soldier Field, a great sign for the future balance of the Bears’ offense.
