NightLink: Rashad Johnson wants to be a Bear


First, GeauxBears is on vacation, thus the picture of Johnson dominating LSU.

Second, Rashad Johnson spoke with Vaughn McClure about being a Chicago Bear, and he was excited:

"There are times I think about when I walked on at Alabama, all those 6 a.m. workouts, I would say to myself, `Oh man, what have I gotten myself into? But after seeing the things that I went through and the outcome of it, I wouldn't rewind the tape and do it all over again," he said. "It means a lot more to me because I worked for every single thing that I got."

Asked about the possibility of playing in Chicago, Johnson sounded a little giddy. His mother, Gloria, is from Gary, Ind.

"Man, it would be great," he said. "I have family in Gary, and I've been to Chicago a few times. And I know they love the Bears up there. That would be a special place."

At this point, I can't tell if this is just good PR on Johnson's part or if he's truly excited. I know I'd be excited to have him....what about the rest of you? Would you rather have Sean Smith if he was available or are you wanting the best player regardless of their position?
