He caught nine passes and returned 35 kickoffs and 40 punts during four seasons with the green-and-gold. The Bears signed him as an unrestricted free agent. He joins offensive tackle Jason Spriggs and tight end Jimmy Graham in Chicago.
>>NASCAR Announces Resumption Of Cup Series Competition Starting May 17th
(Daytona Beach, FL) — NASCAR has announced it will resume the Cup Series competition May 17th at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. A spokesperson says the organization understands the responsibility that comes with the return to competition – so, no fans will be in the grandstands. NASCAR plans to run seven races in 11 days involving its three national series. Charlotte Motor Speedway will host the competition the following week. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper gave his okay assuming health conditions in the state don’t deteriorate.
>>Baseball Could Return To Miller Park This Summer
(New York, NY) — Among the multitude of plans for the return of Major League Baseball is one where teams would resume spring training at their regular-season ballparks. No final decision on that has been made yet. There would be three weeks of spring training before the start of a shortened regular season – possibly about 100 games. The idea of using home parks came from the desire to save time and money. Another step yet to be completed is the reaching of an agreement between baseball and its umpires’ union, possibly by this weekend.
