Bears Name Captains


The Chicago Bears announced captains for the 2013 season today. The offense will be led by offensive lineman Roberto Garza and quarterback Jay Cutler. The defense will be directed by linebacker Lance Briggs and defensive end Julius Peppers. Long snapper Patrick Mannelly will head the special teams. Chicago's five captains have a combined 55 years NFL experience and 16 Pro Bowl selections between them.

For a seventh-straight year, the captains will wear a special patch on their jerseys throughout the season, as part of an initiative by the NFL to emphasize the role.
