‘Hard Knocks’ Life for the Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears picked QB Caleb Williams with the No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL draft, and now they get to showcase him. The team announced on Thursday that it will be featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” for the first time. The show will highlight the team’s training camp.

The Bears finished the 2023 season at 7-10, and with a new QB and new young WR in Rome Odunze, they should make for good television.


Gable Steveson and the Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills don’t have Stefon Diggs, but they do have Keon Coleman and an Olympian. The team announced Friday that they’ve signed Olympic gold medal wrestler Gable Steveson as a defensive lineman. 

Although Steveson is new to the position, the Bills are hoping his athleticism and size will translate to the gridiron. Time will tell.
