Crunch time for Wolfe, Barnes, others

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

For many players, including local products such as Homewood-Flossmoor's Freddie Barnes and Holy Cross's Garrett Wolfe, Thursday night's game in Cleveland may be a last chance to impress before rosters are trimmed to 53 players Saturday.

"For the most part we know what our 54-man roster is going to look like but we want to get one more look at some of the players," Smith said.

At other positions, like nickel back, where Corey Graham and D.J. Moore are competing for playing time, roles are still being defined.

"There are some key battles still going on," defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said. "I always talk about three dogs, one bone and they're all fighting for it. I appreciate that."

Whaaaaaaaaaat? Garrett Wolfe is a Pro Bowler. How could he face cruch time?

Any chance the Bears pick up 'recently released' rookie OT Kyle Calloway from Iowa and a 7th round pick by Buffalo?

Calloway was brought in to Halas Hall prior to the draft, so, the Bears had some interest in him. He might be perfect to put on IR with D'Marcus Webb.

Also, any chance the Bears couldb ring back OG/C Dan Buenning and C Donovan Raiola (TB)? And, possibility the Bears will trade TE Kellen Davis to NE for OT mMrk Levoir?

Neil or Sean,

What's up with Wooton? Seemed like a good pick at the time, but I haven't heard his name since draft day. Is it crunch time for him, too?

Hayes here: He hasn't done much but he hasn't been terrible. He has a nice motor. One issue is he's so tall and plays so upright. Marinelli is working with him to get him to lower his center of gravity. I fully expect him to make the roster because he's a draft pick.
