SHARE Bears’ special teams gets more recognition

While the organization did zero to promote the fact that more than just returner Devin Hester and coverage ace Brendon Ayanbadejo were honored with Tuesday’s release of Pro Bowl information, there is more good news.

Kicker Robbie Gould, who has quietly put together a solid season, was chosen as the second alternate.
