In what was a shocker to many, Brian Volger signed an UDFA contract with the Chicago Bears. The Bears are extremely thin at TE, lacking a true backup for Martellus Bennett. Even more surprising, many Bears fans believe that Vogler has more than a decent shot at landing a spot on the roster. Our man, Brent Taylor, breaks down Vogler for the Chicago faithful below.

Five Questions With Roll 'Bama Roll about Brian Vogler - Windy City Gridiron

WCG - Was Volger's low reception total the last two years (14) a product of the scheme, or is he just not a very good receiver?

RBR - I think his low career reception total is partially due to scheme. The tight ends have never been that involved as pass catchers in the offense. Vogler has shown that he has soft, reliable hands any time he had the chance, but I think he really limits himself by being extremely slow.

Plenty of good stuff over at Windy City Gridiron, and Brent does a good job explaining the limitations in Vogler's game that may prevent him from making the 53-man cut. Pay Windy City a visit, but while you're here, you may as well watch Vogler's highlights and spot what you think Bears' staff saw in the mammoth tight end.
