Fumbled snaps could become a way of life for the Jay Cutler and the Bears.

Bears Training Camp Practice and Free Agent Notes


The Bears opened up the 2011 campaign in Bourbonnais, IL on Saturday with their first practice or any action since the disappointing loss in the NFC Championship game.  It was another interesting day since the lockout dam broke.

The Bears re-signed special teams ace Corey Graham.  They also added Marion Barber and DT Amobi Okoye.   That’s the good news on the Free Agent front. The bad news is that it looks like Olin Kreutz  will be parting company with the team over a measly $500k.  Yes, seriously.

On the camp front, I know everyone is interested, so here’s a breakdown of how the offensive line took shape on Day 1 of practice:

Left tackle: Frank Omiyale

Left guard: Chris Williams

Center: Roberto Garza

Right guard: Lance Louis

Right tackle: J’Marcus Webb

Edwin Williams was supposed to take reps for Kreutz but he can’t practice until August 4th.  If you’re wondering, 1st round pick Gabe Carimi took reps at left tackle with the second team.  Mike Tice wants to see how athletic he is before he starts shaking things up too much.

In what is becoming an annual ritual, DT Marcus Harrison showed up out of shape and overweight, failing his physical.   It’s about time Mr. Harrison gets a pink slip.

Newest Bears wide receiver Roy Williams thinks he’s playing with a Jackass.

Roy Williams: “It’s not just me. You still have Devin Hester. You still have little Johnny Knoxville. We have a good group of wide receivers that can get the job done.”

And that was just the first day of camp.  Interested to see what happens next.

    Seriously, Olin gone over $500k and they sign Barber before paying Forte? WTF? The second coming of Christ with Chester Taylor apparently didn’t work out? Color me surprised.

    I’m looking for a site where someone goes to the camp and comments on the activities on a daily basis. Who’s playing where, first and second units, sitting out with injuries, looks good, looks bad, etc. Anything like that exist in Bear world?

    @pmzamboni Best chance of getting that from what I’ve seen is here and the actual Bears website.
