Chicago Bears camp notes: Armando Allen a sleeper to keep an eye on

Kahlil Bell played well for the Chicago Bears last year, and Armando Allen played in two games for the Bears.  Where Bell comes up short is holding on to the football and it puts him squarely on the hot seat.

Training Camp Thoughts Day 4: Smith, McClellin, Price, Jeffery

WR Brandon Marshall reportedly flashed his skills all night long in front of 10,000 Bears fans in Bourbonnais. He was helped off the field after landing "awkwardly" on the ground.

Now it is University of Illinois football coach Tim Beckman's turn at the famous song. It wasn't a great performance, but it added more enthusiasm to it than Cutler did. Hopefully, Beckman and the Illini play with this enthusiasm during the...

Chicago Bears training camp notes: Day Five Wrap

Shea McClellin should send a thank you card to Brian Price because Price's workout on Tuesday was bad enough that it knocked the rookie off the front page of Bears camp reports. Brian Price struggled mightily in his first full practice in pads with the Bears, raising early alarms about the young players skills.  The naysayers should relax a little, it was one practice and...
