Kevin Warren joined the Chicago Bears at a time where they need major help.
The team is currently rebuilding, and it’s not just their roster.
What the team faces is relocation of their home stadium.
While the City of Chicago doesn’t want the team to move, the hiring of Warren shows how serious the Bears are about relocating.
The new CEO of the Bears has a history of helping build an NFL stadium under his belt.
However, his history behind the building of U.S. Bank Stadium hasn’t gone without ridicule.
Because of this, fans question if he’s able to give them and the Bears a stadium they can love.
While history worries those fans, Warren is assuring them he’s learned from his previous experience.
"You need to plan before you start digging." — Kevin Warren on what he learned from getting U.S. Bank Stadium built that can help Bears get something done at Arlington Park

With the Bears eying a move to Arlington Park, the pressure is on Warren to deliver greatness to fans.
His comments of needing to “plan before you start digging,” will be key heading into the Arlington Park project.
Without proper planning, the fear becomes how the Bears’ new stadium can become an eyesore.
The reason for this is a recent news story on U.S. Bank Stadium being one of the ugliest buildings in the U.S.
However, it appears Warren has learned from that prior mistake, which had people questioning his stadium planning skills.
While he’s dealing with more than helping build a new stadium, fans will focus on this stadium project.
With all eyes on him, Warren faces tons of pressure when he starts as the Bears CEO in April.
