The Chicago Bears have questions on defense following Sunday night’s 34-14 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, especially in the secondary.

And it showed in how the Bears worked out three defensive backs on Tuesday, including DJ Hayden, Lafayette Pitts and Kevon Seymour, according to the transaction wire.

The most prominent name on the list is Hayden, a former first-round pick 2013, who has been a solid slot corner, which is exactly what the Bears are looking for following Marqui Christian’s struggles against the Rams.
