Long, fellow rookies work through Bears mini-camp

First-round draft choice Kyle Long demonstrated the athletic skills that prompted the Chicago Bears to spend the 20th pick on him during his first official Bears practice.

Long and 59 other players, a collection of Bears rookies, first-year players, undrafted college free agents, and approximately 33 “tryout” players went through the paces under the watchful eye of first-year Bears coach Marc Trestman Friday. The three-day mini-camp continues through Sunday with one practice each day.

“It was awesome,” Long said. “It’s good to get to know all the guys, all the incoming guys, a few of the guys from last year are out here.

It’s a great experience. (I want to) just continue to try to earn the respect of teammates and coaches, just try to solidify my knowledge of this offense and get more and more reps.”
