Bears players itching to get back to work

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The ongoing NFL lockout feels strange to two Bears players who attended a charity event hosted by ex-Bear Jerry Azumah at Lucky Strike Lanes in Chicago on Wednesday night.

"It feels a little different not being around the guys in May and potentially June," said safety Chris Harris. "It feels different but everybody is a professional. We've got a group of veteran guys so everybody is taking care of their business."

While most players will tell you they have enjoyed the extra time away from the game, they are starting to feel antsy now that the time when organized team activities usually begin is fast approaching.

"It was good to get some time away from football but it's weird because I'm used to being back at work by now," said backup running back Garrett Wolfe, who also attended the event to raise funds for high-achieving students. "It's weird, very weird, something we could never have seen happening this long. The attitude from most of the players is this has gone on long enough and it's something that needs to be taken care of. Guys are eager to get back to work."
