Our unofficial list of players invited to participate in rookie minicamp on a tryout basis just became official. Sort of.
Rounding out the list for us are:
Greg Brown, Defensive tackle, Indiana
Aaron Lockwood, Guard, Southern Illinois
Adam McDowell, Tight end, Fresno State
Lou Saucedo, Guard, Montana State
Sean Sester, Offensive tackle, Purdue
There is no telling at this point how many of these tryout players--if any--will earn free-agent contracts by the time the weekend is over. Typically, the Bears will sign up a few, and that usually means two, maybe three.
The team will need a second punter for training camp so if one of them shows well, he will probably get an offer. In the past, defensive backs have bad the most luck sticking. Cameron Worrell and Brandon McGowan are the best examples from recent seasons as tryout players who did well.
Stay tuned for updates throughout the weekend.
