Lovie Smith Gives Advice to the Rookies Coming In

There seems to be a lot of build to this seasons Bears rookie class, and as Pro Football Talk points out, even coach Lovie Smith says that the team is expecting a lot – basically saying – make us notice you!

In a video on the Bears’ website showing scenes from the team’s first rookie minicamp practice, Smith implores the rookies to do something that gets them noticed by the coaching staff.

“It’s time to go to work now,” Smith said at the beginning of the workout. “Do something to make us take notice. You’re trying to win a job and help us win a championship.”

After the practice, Smith emphasized that message again.

“Some guys stood out a little bit today, made us take notice,” Smith told the rookies afterward. “And that’s what you want to do—but not just one day. You want to do it over and over. Two more practices. All we ask you to do is just improve a little bit tomorrow.”
