Rookie tight end Cole Kmet has already earned plenty of praise through his first month at Halas Hall, and that trend continued on Monday with GM Ryan Pace. Pace was asked about the status of his tight end room, and didn't stop short when praising Kmet for the work he's put in so far:
The Cole Kmet hype train left the station so, so long ago that it's hard to even remember a time when it was there in the first place. Considering how much the team has publicly praised him and how lofty fan expectations already are – all before Kmet's even played one quarter with NFL contact – I almost feel bad for him. Cole, good luck to you. And as long as you have a dozen or so games with 10 catches, 100 yards and a touchdown, all should be fine.
