In a move that surprised no one, the Chicago Bears announced that an agreement was reached with Olivet Nazarene University to keep training camp in Bourbonnais through 2022.
It was a nine year extension, and that will extend the ONU - Bears partnership longer than the last training camp home of the Bears, Platteville, WI, which ran from 1984-2001.
Yesterday's practice was visited by more than 20,000 fans, and thus far over 100,000 Bears fans have made the trip to Bourbonnais.
If you've had the chance to see training camp this off season we'd love to hear about your experience.
Now on to some tweets about the presser:
ONU says the practice fields will be completely rebuilt and the locker rooms will be doubled in size.
