Good news comes for ex-Bear Ruben Brown. The nine-time Pro Bowl guard has his surgically-repaired shoulder checked out this week and was given full clearance. Hes hoping to catch on with a team soon but its unlikely hell find work here.

That doesnt mean Brown has cut ties with the community, though. He will hold his third annual Ruben Brown Motorcycle Run here June 7-8. The event benefits the Salvation Army and other local charities designed to benefit children.

Access to the Run as well as a post-run party will be free to people who raise $50 in a pledge drive. Theres a lot of neat information for the event and full details are available here.

If the team’s fan convention that weekend is not your thing, and you want a football fix, this is the event.
