About Dallas Cowboys vs. Chicago Bears
The 2016 season saw the Chicago Bears make some news with the drafting of Ben Braunecker, a molecular biology major from Harvard. Even though Braunecker did not make the impact he was expected to, the 2017 roster for the Bears looks promising, strengthened by the signing of tight end Dion Sims and Adam Shaheen in the offseason.
On the flipside, the Dallas Cowboys are also preparing for the 2017 season by filling the gaps in their team’s performance. They used their first round pick to get Taco Charlton, hoping he will boost their pass rush record that was thirteenth in the league with 36 sacks last season. Other new picks in the team include Ryan Switzer, Xavier Woods and Marques White. The Cowboys also drafted defensive tackles Joey Ivie, Noah Brown and Jordan Carrell.
