Ran down some final thoughts on training camp in the paper today. There is only so much space in the print edition and with 79 players on the roster, well, plenty of tidbits were left out. We'll take a look at some impressions on some other players here:
Devin Aromashodu: Wide receiver flashed some ability at times during camp but the Bears have a catch-22 when it comes to getting him action with the first team in preseason. They're only doing so much with three-wide packages and building chemistry between Jay Cutler and starters Devin Hester and Earl Bennett is much more important.
Cody Balogh: Undrafted free agent from Montana last season is bigger and stronger than he was a year ago, and he's fit in well. He's got a good opportunity to get some solid game tape moving forward but with the addition of Kevin Shaffer he might be ticketed for a return to the practice squad.
Josh Beekman: Would be remiss in not mentioning that the arrow is pointing up for him. Probably projects as a center though because of his size.
Earl Bennett: Quietly had a solid camp. We'll see how that translates.
Alex Brown: The focus is on Tommie Harris and Mark Anderson returning to form but Brown might be better with Rod Marinelli on board. He did well rushing on Orlando Pace in camp.
Desmond Clark: Guy gets craftier as he gets older and still is smooth enough to run the seam route.
Rashied Davis: Got more work with the ones over the final week of camp.
Marcus Freeman: Will be looking for him in the second half on Saturday night. Didn't see a lot in training camp but it takes time for rookies to fit in, even on the practice field.
