The Bears took a team vote for the four permanent captains for the season — quarterback Justin Fields, linebacker Roquan Smith, offensive lineman Cody Whitehair and defensive end Robert Quinn. In addition to that, running back David Montgomery will be an honorary fifth captain for Sunday's season opener against the 49ers.

"I just think it's a function of leadership," Eberflus said. "I told the guys when we named the captains, and I always tell them this: the first rule of leadership is leading yourself. I also say this: everybody in the room is a leader, so we all have to do a great job of leading ourselves. We all have to lead, and we lead by modeling the behavior we wish to see in our teammates. That's important, and these guys have done a good job of that."
Eberflus revealed that Bears players voted to select the team captains.
"That says a lot about those guys and what their peers think of them," Eberflus said. "It's a job that you really have just got to focus on doing what you do best and playing great football at your position. You'll lead when it's called upon. But it's really about playing well."
Two offensive players and two defensive players make up the four permanent captains going into the 2022 season. Eberflus said there will be one honorary captain each week.
