Nick Foles can add another achievement to his already impressive resume as he is now a best-selling author.
In addition to that feat, the book will also be on the best-seller lists of Publishers Weekly and USA Today, his publisher Tyndale House announced Thursday on Twitter.
In 2017, calling this position pedestrian for the Bears would have been a compliment. Kendall Wright in the slot was the only legitimate option for Trubisky. That prompted the Bears to break the bank for Allen Robinson, who is coming off a season lost to a torn ACL. They also added speed and versatility with Taylor Gabriel.
Chicago’s limited interest in keeping Cameron Meredith was a little surprising, but not so much when one considers the fact that the team then would have counted on two receivers coming back from torn ACLs. That’s not a comforting thought given how injuries have mounted against 2015 first-rounder Kevin White. The Bears’ signing of Bennie Fowler filled Meredith’s roster spot.
In trading up to draft rookie second-rounder Anthony Miller, the Bears found their Wright replacement, who is critical for Trubisky to keep hitting the routes on which delivered best last season.
Robinson, Gabriel and Miller are in classic roles: the finisher and the field-stretcher outside, the safety valve inside. The group is an organized 180 from Chicago’s previous mess at wide receiver, and anything it can get out of White would be gravy
Reports from OTAs suggest Bridgewater is making progress in the next stage of his recovery from the devastating injury he suffered two summers ago. It might be asking a lot for him to accelerate back to his most promising form in the course of a month.
The Jets took a flyer on Bridgewater because they could see his intermediate passing skill set working well with Bates’ West Coast stylings. For him to start ahead of McCown, it will likely take a spectacular camp, which can’t be ruled out. Bridgewater pushing McCown and staying even with him would be a win-win for the Jets, because it’s always nice to have all the options on the table.
Ugwoegbu will turn 23 in late September, meaning he would be older than most rookies yet still raw as a defender. He was born in London but grew up in Nigeria. His father was a political diplomat before he was assassinated when Ugwoegbu was a senior in high school. Ogwoegbu was suspended indefinitely by Oregon State during the spring due to undisclosed reasons.
