Bears to break out pads Sunday

Posted by Larry Mayer on July 27, 2013 – 7:30 pm

After opening training camp with two non-contact practices as mandated by the CBA, real football returns Sunday morning when the Bears work out in pads for the first time since last season.

“When you put the pads on, everything is strictly business,” said second-year guard James Brown.

“It’s time to go out there and work on the stuff that you can really work on,” said center Roberto Garza. “In shorts, there’s only one speed. When you start hitting people, that’s when the real fun begins. And that’s when we can really start working and getting ready for the season.”

The most contact in padded practices typically is generated in the trenches by defensive linemen rushing the passer and offensive linemen finishing their blocks.

“We’re going to see collisions at the line of scrimmage,” said coach Marc Trestman. “It will be more physical. You’re not going to see players on the ground. You’re going to see very few collisions on the perimeter because we’re going to practice the concepts of cooperation and respect among our team. But where you’ll see the change in our practices is on or near the line of scrimmage, at the first level with our offense and defensive lines and at the second level collisions with our linebackers and defensive backs that are close to the line of scrimmage.
