Bears Training Camp: Chicago Could Be Looking To Add A Safety

With third-round pick Brandon Hardin going on injured reserve for the 2012 season, the Chicago Bears could ramp up their pursuit of a safety to shore up their secondary. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, that could mean that the team explores the waiver wire, or it could mean that the team adds a player like Anthony Walters -- who has performed well in camp -- to the 53-man roster.

The Bears have been linked to ex-Green Bay Packers safety Charlie Peprah, and those whispers may only grow louder with Hardin out for the season. As Biggs notes, the Bears signed Brandon Meriweather to its 2011 roster at about this same juncture in the preseason last year.

For now, Major Wright and Chris Conte are entrenched as starters, but the depth after those two is once again a concern.
