Voluntary camp marks first look at new coaching staff

Tuesday morning we get our first look at the Bears under head coach Marc Trestman.

It's a voluntary camp, but all of the veterans are expected be on hand for the new staff.

There will be plenty to watch, but one of the focal points will be how the offensive line will line up. Will Gabe Carimi be at guard with the first team? What will the defense look like without Brian Urlacher in the middle? We may get an indication of how defensive coordinator Mel Tucker deals with his players and if he takes a more aggressive approach than the laid back style of Lovie Smith's staff.

Offensively, will the Bears have a noticeably different look? Who will line up opposite Brandon Marshall? My bet is Alshon Jeffery will be the guy by the time training camp starts. Will Earl Bennett be the slot receiver and will Devin Hester get any reps on offense.

What will Jay Cutler be asked to do in the new system and how will he relate with a new staff and head coach that will constantly be looking over his shoulder and evaluating his progress.

Obviously, we will only get a sneak peek at what the new staff has in store, but it will provide some insight as to what we can expect to see later in the summer when they arrive in Bourbannais.
