A few days ago, we noted that the Bears weren’t going to get together for player-organized workouts until they were convinced they weren’t a “waste of time.” Apparently, they are now convinced.
Jay Cutler told Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times that “everything is locked and loaded” for the Bears practice soon. It will only be the offensive players.
“I mean, those defenders have been in the system for eight years, nine years, What are they gonna do?” Cutler said. “What am I going to tell Lach [Brian Urlacher]? ‘Your drop is a little short. Sorry, buddy.’ Offensively, we have a lot of room to improve.”
Jensen tracked down Cutler in his hometown of Santa Claus, Indiana, where he participated in an event that raised $342,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. He hosted a smaller charity dinner that night.
Cutler says his knee is fully recovered, although he won’t tell the media where they are practicing so they can get a look. Something tells us someone like Jensen will find them anyway.
It’s not like we have anything else to do.
