Today was the second day of practice in Bourbannais. Tomorrow night the first padded practice will take place at 7:00 p.m. Lance Briggs had some funny things to say about meetings during training camp. Specifically with linebackers coach Bob Babich.
I’m just excited about everything, going into long, boring meetings going over the same stuff, covering a lot of the same materials and listening to Bob Babich talk for two hours straight, Briggs said via That’s the highlight of my day.
First-year Bear Michael Bush figures to be in for a short-yardage role. He knows he needs to embrace whatever role the Bears are going to give him this season.
That’s the role I’ve been stuck with because of my size, he said via But if that’s what I have to do, that’s what I have to do.
Rookie safety Brandon Hardin has the size at 6'3" to be a real athlete in the Bears' secondary for years to come. He is learning to make the same transition that Chris Conte made last season from cornerback to safety.
I’m making the adjustment [to safety] well so far, Hardin said via Learning more and more every day, and that’s the key for me — getting my head in the playbook and learning all I can.
Wide receivers coach Daryl Drake has to be excited about his group this season. He talked about Brandon Marshall's abilities and was pretty honest about it.
I don't think you can catch 100 balls per year and not have good hands, Drake said via Does he have Steve Largent hands? No. Cris Carter hands? No. But he has good-enough hands. When Brandon drops the football, it's because he's trying to make something happen before he catches it, Drake said. We've addressed that. We are working on it.

Bears CB D.J. Moore used Twitter to borrow a fan’s TV for training camp

Training camp. The most monotonous time of the year for spoiled, millionaire NFL players as they dorm it up for like college freshmen several weeks before the regular season. With camps beginning to open across the league, players are getting ready to endure those weeks of monotony. That includes Bears cornerback D.J. Moore, who for an unknown reason didn’t bringing a TV with...

Chicago Bears training camp: updating the left tackle battle

Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice is standing firm behind his words that the battle at left tackle will be a fierce on and that the position is “wide open”. This was anticipated however, as many figured the most intense battle of camp would be at the left tackle position. Incumbent J’Marcus Webb is currently listed first on the depth chart but Tice let it be...

Chicago Bears: Battle For No. 3 RB

Towards the end of the 2011 season Bears fans got a very good look at running backs Kahlil Bell and Armando Allen. Bell had been wearing the blue & orange since 2009. He was signed to the Bears primarily as a special teamer when Garrett Wolfe went on the injured list. His flashes of brilliance that year were good enough to keep him on board for 2010 and he managed to work his...

Israel Idonije won't give up job without a fight

Perhaps no player is better prepared to deal with the thought of losing his job than Bears defensive end Israel Idonije.  No player better exemplifies the cliche of lunch pail player than this Bears player. Idonije has been nothing short of a strong stable reliable player his entire career in Chicago.  He plays well and gets the most out of his ability.  He's not special...

Bears Acquire Brian Price from Buccaneers

The Chicago Bears have added a name o their training camp roster. A day after they opened camp Chicago has traded a seventh round draft pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for defensive tackle Brian Price.  Price was a second round draft pick out of UCLA for the Bucs in 2010, a year in which they doubled up on defensive lineman (selecting Gerald McCoy third overall...

Bears sign RB Bell to one-year deal

The Chicago Bears have signed Kahlil Bell to a one-year contract, bringing back the running back with Matt Forte's status uncertain. Forte left Thursday's loss to Green Bay with what several outlets reported was a high right ankle sprain. Bell, who was waived last month, played 20 games for the Bears over three seasons and made three starts, including the final two last...

Bears’ Devin Hester Survives Scare at Training Camp

During Friday’s practice, Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester left the field shaken up after a collision with safety Major Wright. Hester went over the middle and hauled in a pass and went down after getting entangled with Wright. He was brought to the sidelines rather slowly where he received attention from the trainers. He [...] [[ This is a content summary only. Visit...

Bears’ Brian Urlacher Contract Talks are a Dead Topic

He’s in a contract season but you wouldn’t know that from the way he’s acting. Normally when superstar athletes are in the final year of their deal, they hold out for more money. Jacksonville is experiencing this with Maurice Jones-Drew and the Bears avoided a situation like that by sorting out Matt Forte’s contract earlier [...] [[ This is a content summary only. Visit...

Bears still face questions on offensive line

For all the optimism after that offseason makeover, the Chicago Bears are facing some familiar questions. Many center on the offensive line. ''You know, that's fine,'' tackle Chris Williams said.

Bears acquire DT Brian Price from Bucs

The Chicago Bears have traded an undisclosed 2013 draft pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for defensive tackle Brian Price.

Price could be right for Bears DT

Seeking to strengthen their defensive line, the Chicago Bears took a flyer on underachieving DT Bryan Price Thursday, acquiring the third-year UCLA product in a trade with Tampa Bay. In return, it is believed the Bears gave up a late round draft choice, possibly a seventh rounder. Price capped off a stellar collegiate career in Westwood and became the 35th [...]

Shields Needs To Be Challenged

Cornerback Sam Shields put an exclamation point on a terrific rookie season by picking off two passes in the 2010 NFC Championship Game against the Chicago Bears. Then a funny thing happened on his way to stardom. The former college wide receiver shied away from contact and gave up nine passes of 20 yards or [...]
