Bear Dawn – Your Chicago Bears Links for 6/5/13


The Bears are wrapping up the last few OTA’s before the offseason program caps off with the mandatory veteran minicamp next week while a lot of Blackhawk fans lick their wounds following a disappointing 3-1 loss to the LA Kings.

Here are your links:

Gabe Carimi is expected to rejoin the Bears for the mandatory minicamp.  I wonder how long that stay will last? (Chicago Sun Times)

The Bears are expected to work out three quarterbacks on Friday including JaMarcus Russell, Trent Edwards and Jordan Palmer.  Apparently the Three Stooges had a prior engagement.  (Chicago Tribune)

I guess JaMarcus Russell shed 50 pounds in recent months, which quashes the notion the Bears might be bringing him in to play offensive line. (ESPN Chicago)

GM Phil Emery is apparently “extremely disappointed” in Evan Rodriguez. Maybe he’s going to send him to bed without dessert next.  Grow a pair and cut him already Phil! (ESPN Chicago)

Then again, the Bears will be shorthanded to start the season because tight end Gabe Miller will be suspended for the first four games for PED’s.  Gabe who?  Cut him too Phil! (Chicago Sun Times)

David Haugh doesn’t think that Evan Rodriguez has earned the Bears’ trust.  Considering he was out partying at a Chicago hotspot into the wee hours the night after his DUI, I tend to agree. (Chicago Tribune)

ChicagoNow’s Jeff Hughes disagrees with me on the issue that the Bears should cut Evan Rodriguez and has an interesting take on how the NFL and other sports leagues should deal with player DUI’s. (Da Bears Blog)

Brandon Marshall was cleared for takeoff.  Just in time for the veteran minicamp next week.  That’s great news! (ESPN Chicago)

If you haven’t seen this video of long snapper Zack Smith, you’re missing out.  He’s committed to USC and won’t graduate until 2017, so you won’t see him in the NFL any time soon.

Your move, Patrick Mannelly

Have you taken the Brian Urlacher trivia quiz yet?  If you haven’t you’re missing out. (Chicago Bears)
