Expected to serve as the No. 3 wide receiver of the Chicago Bears the 6-foor-4 Marquess Wilson has been bulking up.
Wilson, 21, spent his rookie season listed at 184 pounds but he is up to 207 according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune. Entering his second season in the NFL, Wilson will be fighting for targets behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
Bears WR Marquess Wilson said today he weighs 207 pounds. As a rookie last season, he was listed at 184.

The Bears will have a host of tall receivers for quarterback Jay Cutler. Appearing in 10 games last season Wilson caught two passes for 13 yards. Needless to say the upcoming season is a big one for the Bears seventh round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
