Bears continue doing homework on wide receivers

SHARE Bears continue doing homework on wide receivers

Jerry Angelo may be fixated on the quarterback position, but judging by the Bears’ actions of late, he’s fixing to do some work at wide receiver.

You can add another wideout to the growing list of players the Bears are going to get together with prior to the draft. Ohio State’s Brian Robiskie is expected to meet 1-on-1 with the club. Whether it’s a private workout in Ohio or a visit to Halas Hall is not known at this point.

What is known the Bears have added him to their radar. Robiskie, whose father Terry is a coach for the Atlanta Falcons, had a big junior season for the Buckeyes before his numbers dipped last year, possibly a function of the team switching to freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor. He’s got good size at 6-3, 210 pounds, and while speed isn’t his forte, his 40 time at the combine at 4.5 put some teams at ease.

Stay tuned.
