Bears to work out Rod Wilson, kick tires on 11 other players

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears are bringing in a familiar face to potentially replace Hunter Hillenmeyer, who was placed on the injured reserve Tuesday.

Rod Wilson, a seventh-round pick of the Bears in 2005, will visit Halas Hall Wednesday. Wilson appeared in 13 games for the Bears in 2006 and 15 games in 2007. He signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in December 2008, appeared in eight games with the Bucs in 2009 then joined the Jacksonville Jaguars in August. The Jaguars, though, released him earlier this month.

Wilson has appeared in 36 NFL games.

A physical for Wilson, though, isn't a given; he was waived/ injured by the Bears in August 2008, after breaking his arm in a preseason game.

Meanwhile, the Bears also looked at 11 other players on Tuesday. Too much shouldn't be read into that, since teams often like to get their hands on available players for future reference.

The linebackers are: Marcus Buggs (Vanderbilt), Blaze Soares (Hawaii), Nate Triplett (Minnesota) and Donovan Woods (Oklahoma State).

The Bears also looked at receivers Keenan Burton (Kentucky), Michael Clayton (LSU), Rashaun Greer (Colorado State), Onrea Jones (Hampton) and Juamorris Stewart (Southern).

The Bears also worked out quarterbacks Tim Hiller (Western Michigan) and Matt Nichols (Eastern Washington).

Wow! Those are some powerful college football feeder programs those 11 players come from. By all mean, grab onto that available player from Vandy! Oh, yeah, and Hampton.

Bears, please sign Clayton, he has great size and a great QB in Jay Cutler. If not Clayton then Vincent Jackson, with him I'm thinking Super Bowl for sure.PLEASE...Go Bears!!!!!!
