The Bears are likely to make Pro Bowl alternate C Cody Whitehair and first-team All-Pro S Eddie Jackson very, very wealthy sooner than later. Whitehair, who became eligible for an extension this offseason, has started 49 consecutive games to begin his career and has a strong rapport with Mitch Trubisky, likely rating him as the Bears' top offseason extension candidate. "Bojack" then learned that he's being reunited with friend and former Alabama teammate Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the Bears' secondary this season. Unlike Whitehair, Jackson can't sign an extension with the Bears until the conclusion of the 2019 campaign. For Whitehair, his agency (CAA) must ensure it knows the Bears' intentions regarding its client's long-range position.
