Chicago Bears Offseason: Mike Tice Gives Update On Offensive Line

Protecting Jay Cutler will be a top priority for the Chicago Bears this season after they saw firsthand what a year would look like without him. Speaking to ChicagoBears.com, offensive line coach Mike Tice gave an update of his unit's performance this offseason.

"I feel like we have guys with talent. Unfortunately, some of it is unrealized talent in terms of not enough consistency. We have some young guys who have shown the ability to play at a high level, but some in the run game only and some only in pass protection. What we need from the younger guys is to take the next step and play at a high level with more consistency."

In a not too surprising statement, Tice added that Chris Spencer will likely start at one of the guard spots in 2012.
