54 players attending Bears rookie camp

SHARE 54 players attending Bears rookie camp

There are 54 players competing at the Bears’ rookie minicamp, that began on Friday and continues Saturday and Sunday. Draft picks and rookie free agents are in attendance, as are a handful of second-year players such as receiver Eric Peterman, fullback Will Ta’ufo’ou, cornerback Woodny Turrene, linebacker Kevin Malast, guard Johan Asiata and tight end Kevin Brock.

How many of the 54, I wonder, will end up making the team? Three? Four? Five? More?

Anywhere, here is a list of the players invited to tryout. Juice Williams is the most recognizable name. The former Illinois and Vocational quarterback may have the longest odds of all with Jay Cutler, Caleb Hanie, Brett Basanez and sixth-round pick Dan LeFevour all expected to compete for playing time in training camp.
