NFC North Notes: Bears, Packers, Vikings



Bears veteran QB Chase Daniel says he’s been impressed by what he’s seen from second-year QB Mitchell Trubisky since he arrived in Chicago.

To be able to see him grow in the offense, even in just eight weeks, has been tremendous,” Daniel said on 670 The Score in Chicago.


Packers WR Randall Cobb admitted that it’s become more than apparent that no one is completely safe from being released after some of the notable cuts Green Bay has made over the past few years.

There was nothing for me (to do). I didn’t know what was going to happen, and even at this point, I still don’t know,” Cobb said, via “I mean, I’ve seen guys leave right before the season starts. You’re never in the clear. I think there’s always, you always have to have some kind of fear of something happening. Anything can happen, whether it be in the middle of the season being traded, or being cut at any given time.

“That’s the nature of the business that we’re in.”

Cobb added that change is constant int he NFL and it’s something players just have to adapt to over time.

“You can see things changing [around here],” Cobb said. “You can see the vibe changing a little bit, and that’s a good thing. Change is inevitable with time, and it’s part of the game. I think that’s the only constant thing you have in life is change. You just have to be able to adapt to that change.”


The Vikings now have defensive endsDanielle Hunter andEverson Griffen under contract for the foreseeable future after Hunter agreed to a new five-year, $72 million extension on Wednesday.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer says that their defensive front should now be very good for the next few years.

“These guys are really hard to find,” Zimmer said, via “They’re hard, and most of the time you have to get them very high in the draft. Coach Patterson and Coach [George] Edwards have done a great job in developing the guys that we have. That’s kind of been one of our traits: Get these guys, and then develop them into better players. To have two dynamic rushers on the edge helps us inside with Linval [Joseph] and Sheldon [Richardson] hopefully, and hopefully those four guys, we get the rest of them going, we should continue to be good for a little while.”
