From Mark Potash:

Running back Chester Taylor, a disappointment last season when he gained 267 yards and averaged 2.4 yards per carry with three touchdowns after signing a four-year, $12.5 million contract, doesn’t see the signing of Marion Barber as a threat.

”I don’t wonder nothing,” said Taylor, who will make $1.25 million in salary in 2011. ”I just feel like they added more depth in the backfield.

”You have to have depth in the backfield because anyone can go down at any time. I believe he can help us more than he can hurt us. He did a lot for Dallas. Hopefully he can bring that here, too.”

Asked if a three-back attack can work in the Bears’ offense, Taylor said, ”It has before. So we’ll see.
