The Bears were as surprised as anybody execpt for Tim Day himself when he went undrafted, but it might have ended up being good for everybody.
"Obviously, for many years I've been thinking about getting drafted and having people talk about me and all that," said the 6-foot-4, 265-pound Wallace. "It's a pretty humbling experience. (But) it's probably better for me because I got to end up here."
Day, the same height and weight as Wallace, also appreciates the opportunity, considering the Bears' desire to upgrade at the position.
"It didn't work out for me being drafted," Day said, "but being undrafted and coming here is great. I think it's the best place for me to come in and get some time and show my talents to the team."
