Latest Chicago Bears News
Jimmy Clausen surprised at how accommodating Jay Cutler has been (Shutdown Corner) ( today ) Courtesy of
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. — News of the Chicago Bears signing a quarterback, once the 48th overall pick in the 2010 draft, was largely swept under the rug this offseason. Very quietly, the Bears this offseason offered a lifeline to Jimmy Clausen, who once was the face of the Notre Dame program and who started 10 games as a rookie in the NFL but who also spent the past three seasons almost atrophying with the Carolina Panthers. Clausen struggled as a rookie on a bad offense but never had time to grow with the Panthers, who the next year drafted Cam Newton first overall. The last time Clausen took a regular-season snap in the NFL was January 2, 2011. He suffered a torn labrum in the preseason finale last August and spent the season on injured reserve. [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] And here he is reporting to Bears camp, playing catchup in order to try to win a job in reserve behind starter Jay Cutler. Veteran Jordan Palmer and even sixth-round pick David Fales have been in head coach Marc Trestman's system longer than Clausen, who signed in June. Don't count out Clausen to win the backup job, said GM Phil Emery, who has been impressed with what he has seen from an intangible standpoint so far. Yahoo! Thu, Jul 24

Jaguars name Butkus interim OL coach (The SportsXchange) ( today ) Courtesy of
Luke Butkus will be interim offensive line coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, filling in while George Yarno battles cancer near his family in Spokane, Wash. Butkus, nephew of Hall of Fame Chicago Bears linebacker Dick Butkus, played football at University of Illinois and is in his seventh season in the NFL. Yarno, 56, will be away from the team for "some months," head coach Gus Bradley said Thursday. Yarno, diagnosed with cancer in May, planned to coach during treatment with Butkus, then assistant offensive line coach, filling in as needed. Yahoo! Thu, Jul 24
 
NFL roundup: Bowlen relinquishes control of Broncos (The SportsXchange) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is resigning control of the team to focus on battling Alzheimer's Disease. In 16 playoff appearances, the Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl six times. "This is a sad day for the NFL," commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday in a statement released by the league. "Pat Bowlen's leadership has been critical to the success of the Broncos and the entire NFL." Yahoo! Wed, Jul 23
 
Bears bring high expectations to camp (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery understands expectations are soaring. The Bears are aiming high, hoping to return to the playoffs after missing out for the sixth time in seven years, going into their third training camp under Emery. We're very aggressive toward attaining that goal and we're very accountable as an organization to make the necessary adjustments to stay on path toward our goal.'' That will hinge largely on how a rebuilt defense that now includes five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen comes together. The Bears couldn't stop anyone last season, and it added up to an 8-8 record and a spot in front of the TV when the postseason started. Yahoo! Wed, Jul 23
