Though the draft has yet to commence, we are less than three months from the start of training camps around the NFL.

On Tuesday came news of the training camp reporting date for one NFC North club. Via Bears sideline reporter Zach Zaidman of 670 AM in Chicago, the Bears will arrive at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois on July 24, the club’s website announced.

Olivet Nazarene has been the Bears’ summer home since 2002. The club agreed last year to remain in Bourbonnais for summer training through 2022.

The Bears are regarded as a candidate for HBO’s Hard Knocks. However, the NFL denied Tuesday that the Bears, Giants and Steelers were the three finalists for the 2014 edition of the show.

The Bears’ first practice of camp is expected to take place on July 25, per ChicagoBears.com.
