Currie Shines

During the first of 14 organized team activities, 2nd year wideout Airese Currie shined.

Speedy second-year wide receiver Airese Currie was the star of the day, catching two passes deep down the left sideline from Rex Grossman and hooking up with Kyle Orton on a slant.

Wide receiver Airese Currie lines up during 7-on-7 drills Wednesday at Halas Hall.
"He's the fastest guy on our team and we had a chance to see that," said coach Lovie Smith. "I think that he could come onto the scene strong. It was good to see him get a start like that."

How did the other players in the receiving game do?

Currie wasn't the only Bears receiver who looked sharp Wednesday. Justin Gage caught every pass thrown in his direction, Bernard Berrian made plays down the field and converted cornerback Rashied Davis displayed quickness and good hands.

"I think we're going to be able to find a good complement to (Muhsin Muhammad)," Smith said. "There are a couple of guys who we really feel good about receiver-wise."

While the Bears have been criticized for not drafting a tight end, the position looked like anything but a weakness Wednesday as Desmond Clark, John Gilmore and Gabe Reid all made excellent catches while surrounded by defenders.

Both Thomas Jones and Lance Briggs were absent from the practice.
