As the Chicago Bears open their first Training Camp under new general manager Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox, let's take a look at some headlines:
- John Fox speaks on quarterback Jay Cutler - "He's done everything we've asked."
- Former captain of the 1963 team, Mike Pyle, has passed away. His family thinks CTE may be a factor.
- The Chicago Bears players are arriving to camp with a "new attitude" - new in what ways?
- Rookie WR Kevin White opens camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
- The Bears sign a jack-of-all trades athlete, A.J. Cruz, to a contract.
- With the new 3-4 defense being implemented, the inside linebackers will be a critical component.
From a scheduling perspective, the team will have a pads-free preactice Thursday and Friday, have a couple of public events over the weekend, then kick off next Monday with full drills.
We're one step closer to real football!
