The Bears will bring in Wisconsin long snapper Dave Peck on a tryout basis this weekend for the rookie minicamp, a league source texted us this morning.
Peck was the long snapper for the Badgers for three seasons. Here's a Q&A he did last fall.
Peck is going to have an uphill battle to get to training camp. With the reduction of training camp rosters, the Bears have not considered bringing a backup for Pat Mannelly to camp. But a good showing by Peck could keep his name near the top of an emergency list.
Rookie minicamp will run Friday through Sunday at Halas Hall.
