Bears cut Charles Leno Jr. Jenkins must be moving to left tackle and will be starter in game one?
I really thought Jenkins was going to be a right tackle. I know that the Bears have cap room issues, but I hope that they are right about his ability to play on the left side.

More than likely yeah with Ifedi playing at right tackle and Borom as the back-up for both.

As much as people may not have always liked Charles Leno's play, it's still impressive he had as long of a career with the Bears considering he was a 7th round pick.

Preston Pearson, Illini class of '67, only played basketball at Illinois, never played college football, yet was a 12th round NFL pick. He played 14 years as a running back in the NFL, including 5 super bowls.

Can’t believe that either A. Never heard that story, or B. Completely forgot about it.
