Hmmm. I wonder how bad Graham's thigh actually is?

Did Graham tear something? That does suck.

Harris looks OK and has some good tape. He's also bounced around a lot in addition to starting a lot of games... so that's sort of weird.

I've become intrigued with TOLJ since wab started talking about him making some noise in camp. I'm low key hoping he makes the squad because I like the idea of a big/long zone corner who has the size to press even if he isn't super fast. Peanut wasn't fast.

Having to watch more Cornhusker games than I'd like, Jackson has NFL talent. He's not fast, but he is very fluid for a corner his size. The biggest knock on him coming out were his straight line speed and tackling. He was always more of a grabber in college than a tackler.

I find myself rooting for him to make that last corner spot.

Apparently the Bears worked out CBs Vernon Hargreaves, a former 1st round pick, and Isaiah Johnson as well as Davontae Harris. Harris must have impressed the most.

They also worked out two DL, Trevon Coley and Josh Mauro and signed the former.

They cut safety Jon Alexander and defensive lineman Auzoyah Alufohai to make room for them.

Hargreaves was a guy I was big on coming out of college. I was wrong. Shocking I know.

Harris played for a a year and a half under Fangio, and so from that he's an immediate answer to camp needs. He's had an injury-riddled career, bouncing from team to team on PS. He's an ISU Redbird.

Tough for Graham.

That's liable to lose him the battle with Young for the, uh, Nickel Back When Gordon Isn't job

According to this meet the rookies video, Gordon doesn't have that sort of patience.
