Case of mistaken WR; Grice-Mullen in camp for tryout

SHARE Case of mistaken WR; Grice-Mullen in camp for tryout

With his flowing dreadlocks, from a distance he looked like Devin Hester walking into the dining hall at Olivet Nazarene University Thursday morning.

It wasn’t the holdout wide receiver but another pass catcher.

Ryan Grice-Mullen is here for a free-agent workout today. The Hawaii wide receiver went undrafted in April and was signed by the Houston Texans. He was released June 13 and never participated in OTA’s because of a leg injury. The Bears can check out to see if he is healthy now.

Grice-Mullen, 5-11, 187 pounds, was Colt Brennan’s leading receiver last season, hauling in 12 touchdowns for 1,228 receiving yards for the Sugar Bowl-bound Warriors.

The Bears have nine receivers on the roster, including the absent Hester.

Practice is in three hours. We’ll check back with more later on.
