Eddie Jackson has some moves:

Sometimes, I like to get lost down YouTube rabbit holes. And to be honest, it’s happening more frequently as I try to dig up highlights of some of the Bears’ newest players. Jackson, one of the Bears’ two fourth-round picks, is the latest because he is mentioned by CSN Chicago’s Chris Boden’s special teams preview as possibly getting a look as a return specialist during training camp.

Bears specialists haven’t been all that special since the team parted ways with Devin Hester. Last season, the Bears finished 18th in kick return average and 19th on punt returns. Considering potential issues they could encounter moving the ball through the air, getting the special teams unit to tilt the field position battle in the Bears’ favor could be helpful in 2017.
