Here are a few other random nuggets from the Chicago Bears minicamp

Cole Kmet is the full package according to Ryan Griffin

During his press conference today, Ryan Griffin was asked about his thoughts on Cole Kmet. Griffin’s response was that he is the full package. He has all the traits — size, strength, mechanics, work ethic, willingness to do what is required — needed to be a good tight end in the NFL.

Trestan Ebner may be carving out a role in the offense

During the Matt Eberflus press conference, Trestan Ebner was brought up by a reporter. Apparently, during today’s practice, reporters saw Ebner make a nice catch downfield. Eberflus spoke very highly of Ebner. He talked about Ebener’s ability to run a full route tree. He talked about how he’s an explosive athlete and how they are excited about where he is at right now.

2022 Training Camp dates will be made public next week

Not much to say here other than I wish the time between minicamp and training camp was a little shorter.

Equanimeous St. Brown might be proving me wrong

My thoughts on Equanimeous St. Brown getting a contract with the Chicago Bears is that it was obviously the Luke Getsy connection that got him the job. However, I did not believe St. Brown would make the final roster even with that connection. I’m on record saying I believe St. Brown was brought in just to help bring the other receivers along faster since he already knows the gist of Getsy’s offense.

I don’t believe St. Brown is a very good wide receiver and I find others on the current roster to have more talent. Maybe he’s doing better here without Aaron Rodgers. Who knows. Well, one thing is for sure, with Matt Eberflus again mentioning St. Brown in his press conference today, I’m starting to think that I was wrong.
