These guys are so baby faced it's shocking, I know we wanted to get young.  Mission accomplished!

But did you notice how they seemed to handle their interviews quite well... They all came across as intelligent and able to answer questions. 

I thought Nagy came across very well for what it's worth at this stage in the game.  He's very articulate and seems comfortable and confident.

I like that Nagy actually answers questions and not just spitting out tired cliches, like Fox and Smith before him did.

There was a guy in there between Fox and Smith..........what did you think of his coach speak?

Bears sign 5 tryout players after rookie minicamp concludes

The Bears on Monday finalized contracts with five players who tried out for the team at rookie minicamp over the weekend.

Receiver Matt Fleming, defensive backs John Franklin III and Tyrin Holloway and offensive linemen Jeremi Hall and Matt McCants signed.

To make room for them, the Bears terminated the contracts of outside linebacker Howard Jones, undrafted rookie linebacker Nyles Morgan of Notre Dame and offensive linemen Cameron Lee and Travis Averill.

The Bears are now at the 90-man roster limit. They begin organized team activities Tuesday, the first time this offseason that they can practice offense versus defense on the field.

Bears sign 5 players, including Simeon and Benedictine alum Matt Fleming

The Bears signed five players Monday, including former Simeon receiver Matt Fleming one day after the end of rookie minicamp, which featured tryout players.

The most notable of the four players cut to make room on the roster was outside linebacker Howard Jones, who appeared in four games for the Bears last season and 20 with the Buccaneers in 2015 and 2016.

Fleming, a former Simeon star from Benedictine University in Lisle, had 45 catches for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. He was also a Division III track star. Coach Matt Nagy singled him out at the end of
rookie minicamp Sunday.

“Not a real big kid,” Nagy said, “but he made his assignments, did his job, made some nice catches.”

The Bears, who are desperate for pass-rush help despite drafting Utah’s Kylie Fitts in the sixth round, signed the 49ers’ Aaron Lynch and re-signed Sam Acho to team with former first-round pick Leonard Floyd.

The Bears also cut former Notre Dame linebacker Nyles Morgan, who signed last week, as well as offensive linemen Cameron Lee and Travis Averill.

Offensive linemen Jeremi Hall and Matt McCants and defensive backs Tyrin Holloway and John Franklin III also signed.

Franklin played quarterback and receiver during his college stops: East Mississippi Community College (featured on a Netflix series called “Last Chance U”); Florida State; Auburn; and Florida Atlantic.

Franklin, who caught seven passes for 95 yards for the Owls last year, has never played defense before.

My 2018 Prediction...7-9 or 8-8 if they get lucky.
