Bears Bites: Wootton's Value Going Up As Time at Tackle Increases

Also, Marshall's efforts to fit in on the Bears are examined

 In today’s edition of Bears Bites, we take a look at a couple of the Chicago Bears’ interior defensive linemen, and we also check out the fantasy value of Jay Cutler.

-Corey Wootton has been spending a lot of time as a ‘three-technique’ defensive tackle in recent weeks because of the injuries that have ravaged the Bears’ line. That could be beneficial to him both in the sense that he’ll be more versatile, and also because he will be in line for a pay increase next season. [CSN Chicago]

-Speaking of Bears’ linemen, Stephen Paea is eager to come back after missing their Week 5 tilt with the New Orleans Saints. And that’s good, because the Bears need him back in a big way. [Chicago Sun-Times]

-Jay Cutler may have been a fantasy dud in recent seasons, but he is definitely earning his stripes in that regard this season. [670 the Score]

-To those looking for a preview of the Bears’ upcoming game against the New York Giants, look no further than Bob Warja’s breakdown. [Bears Huddle]

-Brandon Marshall is trying to sort out his role with the Bears’, and the growing pains associated with that are causing some drama around the team. [Daily Herald]
