NFC North Daily: Hot Breakfast Links for June 11, 2012

Andrew Garda@andrew_gardaFeatured ColumnistJune 11, 2012

Hope you guys had a great weekend and are recharged for what could be one of the slower news weeks of the year! WOO!

It won't slow down here, though. I'll be recording two videos today—both NFC North related—so look for them over the next few days.

We'll be counting down the top five players in the NFC North this week as well. There will be more game breakdowns.

So stick around—the NFL goes for 365 days a year and so does Bleacher Report.

Among some of the more general news items I read this weekend, Mitch Albom had an interesting piece on concussions, the motivations behind the myriad of lawsuits and one former player's thoughts on both.

Check it out when you have time.

Today, we have links to catch up on some rookies, a youth camp report, a story of hugs, not slugs and some second-year players making up for last year's lost offseason.




Chicago Bears

Vaughn McClure reports on Lance Briggs' youth football camp, which was held for underprivileged youth in Sacramento, Calif.

Sam Monson of talks about a player he thinks is unappreciated by the Bears.

Alshon Jeffery is ready to work, in more ways than one, according to Melissa Isaacson of ESPNChicago.


Detroit Lions

Justin Rogers reports that regardless of whether they are best friends or even like each other, Titus Young and Louis Delmas are past their fight.

Nate Burleson has some interesting ideas for his post-career career, one he hopes to finish with Lions, according to Dave Birkett.


Green Bay Packers takes a closer look at second-round pick Jerel Worthy.

Lori Nickel of reports that second-year player's Devon House and Alex Green stayed in Green Bay this offseason to work out and get better.


Minnesota Vikings

Tom Pelissero reports that second-year wide receiver Stephen Burton is impressing at OTAs after a rough first year.

Rookies Greg Childs and Jarius Wright don't have to get to know each other, reports Dan Wiederer. They've played together since high school.
