With injuries to key defensive players this past season, Bears coach Marc Trestman’s relied heavily on Wootton’s versatility and the fourth year vet didn’t disappoint. Wootton played multiple positions this season for the Bears and recorded 28 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 16 games this season—15 of which he started.
