Chicago Bears training camp 2014: August 01 open thread

New, comments

DJ Williams' phobia of the omnipresent exercise balls is becoming increasingly evident to his teammates.

Another practice, another bottom-of-the-roster change as the Bears waive OT Cody Booth (UDFA out of Temple) and replace him with OT Dennis Roland, who has started 30 games and made 71 appearances for the Cincinnati Bengals over the past six seasons.  After Mike North's careful reasoning I thought perhaps they might be bringing in Tim Tebow, but... no.

If you missed them or need a refresher, catch up with yesterday's open thread and/or practice recap; for the latest Chicago Bears news, take a peek at the Bears Den.

Lester will have the usual summary of key events and observations from practice for you later.  In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts and any interesting tweets that you see in this open thread.

A few words from Lester, taken from last year's training camp open threads:

The ChicagoBears.com website has everything you need to know about Training Camp here.

Please keep in mind that Open Threads are rated WCG-MA, so you may see a naughty word or two in the comment section. Here's a link to our community guidelines so you know what is still out of bounds. It may be an open thread, but we still should act fairly civilized, we're not Yahoos.

Now enjoy the open thread!
