Bears S Adrian Amos, NT Eddie Goldman named to PFWA All-Rookie team

The 2015 draft produced two starters on offense – center Hroniss Grasu, running back Jeremy Langford – and two on defense – safety Adrian Amos, nose tackle Eddie Goldman. The latter two, projected core players in what GM Ryan Pace and coach John Fox expect to be a Bears defense for years to come, have been selected as members of the NFL’s All-Rookie team by the Pro Football Writers Association of America.

The PFWA is made up of accredited writers who cover the NFL and the 32 teams on a daily basis.

Goldman was the Bears’ second-round selection last spring, played in 15 games, starting 12 and was credited in team stats with 39 tackles and 4½ sacks. Amos, a fifth-round pick, started all 16 games at safety, and was credited with 108 tackles, four passes broken up and one sack.

St. Louis Rams running back Todd Gurley was rookie of the year and offensive rookie of the year. Kansas City cornerback Marcus Peters was defensive rookie of the year.

Mitch Trubisky will reportedly start for the Bears' Week 7 matchup with the New Orleans Saints

Mitch Trubisky will reportedly start for the Bears' Week 7 matchup with the New Orleans Saints

We'd been circling this news all week, and now it's getting closer to reality: late Saturday night, Adam Schefter reported that QB Mitch Trubisky will be under center for the Bears' matchup with the Saints this Sunday:

Trubisky was a full participant in practice from Wednesday to Friday of last week, but had still been listed as questionable up to this point. He returns after dislocating his left shoulder in Week 4 against the Vikings and missing the team's Week 5 loss to the Raiders.

The news comes at a crucial juncture of the season for the Bears, who are currently 3-2 and in third place in the NFC North.

Puppy Pick 'Em Puppy Walter makes his Week 7 picks for Bears-Saints

Puppy Pick 'Em Puppy Walter makes his Week 7 picks for Bears-Saints

When the Bears announced their 2019 schedule, we decided to have some puppies reveal the opponents. Now, we have taken it a step further. We have a puppy that will make weekly picks for the Bears games.

It is Week 7!

Walter's choices in Week 7 are a chance to go to Mardi Gras or a celebration of St. Patrick's day in Chicago. Bears fans should be excited about his decision in Week 7... and now we're all looking forward to St. Patrick's Day again!

The 12-week old dachshund was hand-selected by the scouts at NBC Sports Chicago and hails from One Tail at a Time rescue. He came from a shelter in Alabama and was transported to Chicago.  At just 7 weeks old and without his mom, he beat a deadly virus and spent some time in the doggie ER, where he healed and became strong again. 

Now, Walter is ready to rumble between the well-manicured lines of Sweetness Field. He is NOW adoptable via onetail.org and has two adorable sisters named Martha and Millie, who are already adopted. 

Walter will pick the games throughout the NFL season, including the playoffs and we hope that his nose follows the scent to the Bears every week, all the way to that magical game in Miami in February. Narrated by Jason Benetti, play-by-play announcer for the White Sox.  

It is time for Puppy Pick ‘Em presented by Nissan.
