SHARE Bears check out more programs on Tuesday

Oklahoma and Auburn were not the only places the Bears showed up at on Tuesday.

Scouts also surfaced in Lawrence, Kan., at the Kansas pro day and in Seattle at Washington’s pro day.

At Kansas, the Jayhawks had some linebackers on display–Joe Mortenson, Mike RIvera and James Holt. Rivera and Mortenson have battled injuries the last few seasons but did well.

At Washington, Huskies center Juan Garcia might be the only player drafted. He was the only player from the program invited to the scouting combine. The Bears reportedly showed some interest in right tackle Chad Macklin, who is a free agent after being draft eligible last year.
