The Chicago Bears plugged some holes and answered some questions with their 2019 NFL Draft choices. However there's still a huge question mark when it comes to the Bears' kicker position. Cody Parkey didn't prove to be that guy and he's long gone booted out of town, right now the Bears' have a roster full of kickers who have never kicked in the NFL before. Head coach Matt Nagy has called the Bears' kicking situation the clear "elephant in the room" however said it's not totally a downer situation. «This right here is half full, not half empty,» Nagy said. «That's where we're at right now. All this kicking stuff and the field goals and everything like that, we're open«We can use the, ‘Hey, the Cody Parkey miss.' It's OK. It doesn't hurt me. It's fine, it's good…Use it, talk about it. It's a healthy thing. So we feel good about it, and we're going to get this thing right.»Bears' general manager Ryan Pace doesn't care about how it might look to the outside world.«Maybe it's a little unorthodox to have four kickers out there,» Pace said on Saturday. «We don't care. Let's increase the competition and let the whole thing battle out…We're going to do whatever we can to get that situation right.»
