The doors to Halas Hall are opened to Bears players to officially kick off their 2014 OTA’s (Organized Team Activities). I say “officially” because unofficially, the Bears have been conducting their own organized team activities, albeit in South Florida. From what I could tell, Brandon Marshall is the ringleader of the #Southbear movement. The Bears took over South Beach and Marshall’s FitSpeed training facility and spent this offseason together training and building their team.
It’s not just Alshon Jeffery and Marquess Wilson tagging along with Marshall. It’s players from across the board – offensive linemen, defensive players, newcomers and veterans made appearances at these activities. Even Jay Cutler made it down for a few of the activities.
But it’s not just training and working out. They spent a lot of time building chemistry and really gelling as a team.
