All practices will take place on the campus of Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL unless noted.

You’ll notice quite a difference in the practice schedule as compared to Lovie Smith.  Trestman will conduct most of his practices in the morning, before the heat of the day really kicks in.  There has been a lot of talk about player safety and Trestman’s actions and the schedule reflect that idea.

I expect this camp to have really strong attendance as fans and wannabe experts like me try to get their first look at the Bears under Marc Trestman.  How will the drills be different?  What does the new offense look like?  Can any of the new guys play?

Be sure to check the Bears website for updates, as practice times are subject to change.

I haven’t been to camp in several years and am already making plans to head down this year, so be on the lookout!
