Special-teams rankings: Teams 1-10
With training camps approaching, Scouts Inc. ranks the NFL teams 1-32 on special teams.
The Bears have Pro Bowlers in place-kicker Robbie Gould, core player Brendon Ayanbadejo and explosive returner Devin Hester. Special-teams coordinator Dave Toub does an excellent job of letting his talented players play to their strengths and not overcomplicating the schemes. The coverage units are solid and keep opponents pinned deep. They will continue to provide the offense with exceptional field position.
