What's buzzing:

Bears could move WR Bennett

The SportsXchange

Chicago Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett could be relocating before the start of the regular season.

Bennett, who attended Vanderbilt and reunited with his college quarterback when the Bears acquired Jay Cutler, has been dealing with a concussion for nearly one month. He was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice but isn't yet fully cleared.

Coach Marc Trestman and offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer have been pleased with seventh-round pick Marquess Wilson. Wilson, labeled a pariah by some NFL evaluators after his flap with coach Mike Leach at Washington State, has potential to become at least a No. 2 receiver, and his salary is less than one-sixth what Bennett is due in 2013 ($2.245 million).

Bennett's niche is as a slot receiver, but durability is becoming an issue. He missed time last season with a concussion and, since starting 15 games in his second season in 2009, Bennett had only 11 starts the past three seasons.
