2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Melton parlayed a breakout six-sack, 44-tackle campaign into a franchise tender, earning him a lucrative one-year, $8.5 million deal. It's unclear how much room for growth he has, but with 13 sacks over the last two seasons, he's proven to be one of the better pass-rushing defensive tackles in the game today.

2012

The sky continues to be the limit for Melton, as the coaching staff cannot stop singing his praises. While he did seem to disappear at times last year, a full offseason can only further his development this year.

2011

Melton showed impressive flashes in 2010 giving the Bears high hopes for the new season. Consequently, Melton is lining up as the starting under tackle for Bears during camp, a position which the team is suddenly very deep at.
