Bears minicamp is all about speed

Bears minicamp is all about speed

CHICAGO -- A highlight of Bears camp Saturday was not Olympic speedster John Capel running flat out for a deep pass from Shane Matthews, but cornerback Jerry Azumah stride for stride with him to break it up.

"We've got some Olympic speed over here, too," secondary coach Vance Bedford declared.

PACKERS: Defensive end Jamal Reynolds, who wore No. 58 for the Seminoles, will wear No. 99 in Green Bay. Center Mike Flanagan has worn 58 since 1996.

PANTHERS: First-round draft pick Dan Morgan (hamstring) will sit out again today.
