NFC North Daily: Hot Breakfast Links for June 8, 2012

Andrew GardaFeatured ColumnistJune 8, 2012

Short and sweet today as I have my son's "moving up" ceremony—you know, the big jump from fifth to sixth grade!

So I'm out the door—enjoy and I will be back this afternoon.

 

Chicago Bears

One of the concerns with the Bears' selection of Shea McClellin was his change from a college linebacker to a pro defensive end. Jeff Dickerson says McClellin isn't someone with those concerns.

Lester Wiltfong has an interesting exercise over at Windy City Gridiron—what if you stole Ndamukong Suh and put him on the Bears? He's doing it for all three Bears rivals, so that should be fun.

Yesterday, the Chicago Tribune had a report that "The Refrigerator" might be back in the Bears offense in the form of Henry Melton. Fred Mitchell says that the defensive tackle might be deployed in short-yardage and goal-line situations.

 

Detroit Lions

Anwar Richardson reports that Jeff Backus has taken rookie Riley Reiff under his wing.

Steve Schrader reports Gregg Rosenthal's assertion that Suh is overrated on the NFL Players Top 100 List.

 

Green Bay Packers

Kris Burke takes a look at Mark Murphy's work going into year five of his term as president of the Packers.

Bob Wolfey reports that Charles Woodson landed at No. 36 on the NFL Players Top 100. Which is actually a slip.

 

Minnesota Vikings

The Star Tribune has a video on figuring out a solution for the third running back.

Finally, Judd Zulgad talks about how Toby Gerhart's 2011 knee injury has given him a fresh outlook. 

 

I'll link the writers on Twitter this afternoon—for now, I'm off to pseudo-graduation.

Where can I comment?
