The Bears have had a good deal of success pulling players from Louisiana schools in the last decade or so. Running back Matt Forte, cornerback Charles Tillman, strong safety Kevin Payne, safety Craig Steltz, ex-safety Chris Harris and ex-wide receiver Marty Booker are a few examples.
Looks like they have their eyes in another Cajun, this one a Ragin Cajun.
The Bears are reportedly one of three teams with interest in Louisiana-Lafayette wide receiver Jason Chery, who is expected to make a visit to Halas Hall. Chery came on as a receiver last season and looks to be a solid special teams players. The Bears like to bring later round prospects in for visits so they can get medical information on them as these players typically were not invited to the combine. Chery did not go to Indianapolis.
Pittsburgh sent its wide receivers coach to the Cajuns pro day and Green Bay and Seattle are also expressing interest.
Keep an eye on him.
