While the Chicago Bears are certainly on the up and up after a transformational offseason, the roster still needs to earn every ounce of respect in a business where the proof is in the pudding.
In ESPN's annual list predicting the top 100-ranked players in the NFL, only one Bears player made the cut.
Wide receiver DJ Moore, who the Bears acquired as part of a package from the Carolina Panthers in exchange for the No. 1 overall pick, has been ranked as the 99th best player in the league by ESPN.
Moore, 26, has had three seasons over 1,100 yards receiving with a rotation of low quality quarterbacks.
