The Bears have extended a minicamp tryout invitation to Missouri-Rolla wide receiver Ashton Gronewold.
The 5-10, 190-pounder holds virtually every record at the Division II school. He caught 32 touchdown passes over the last two seasons and had backto-back 1,000-yard seasons. He’s undersized but has toughness, and the Bears went into the school to check him out, a source said. He also worked out at the University of Missouri’s pro day.
Gronewold is from downstate Carthage.
