Glimpse of the future? Shea McClellin a stand-up guy

SHARE Glimpse of the future? Shea McClellin a stand-up guy

The Bears were adamant that rookie Shea McClellin would be exclusively a ”hand-on-the-ground” defensive end. But on one play in the third quarter, they used McClellin as a stand-up 3-4 end/linebacker –roving behind the line and finding a spot to attack.

”That’s just a special package we have to mix up the looks we’re giving,” McClellin said. ”I think it’s good to mix it up. It feels natural to be standing up — I did a lot of that in college.”

McClellin said he doesn’t expect the coaches to make it a regular defensive tack, ”but if they do, I’m all for it,” he said.
