TEAMS: Chicago Bears
The Marc Trestman era will kick into full swing Tuesday when the Chicago Bears start their offseason training activities. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, under the new CBA, first year coaches get a two week head start. Biggs writes: ‘While the nine-week offseason program is considered voluntary, the Bears are expected to have excellent attendance and another perk for new coaches is a second voluntary minicamp that the Bears will hold April 16-18. The CBA mandates that the offseason program be divided into three phases. The first two weeks are limited to strength and conditioning and rehabilitation work only, an opportunity for new strength and conditioning coach Mike Clark to get acquainted with the roster. That means Trestman won’t be working with quarterback Jay Cutler on the practice fields behind headquarters later this week or next week.’ var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
