NFC Notes: Bears, Buccaneers, Falcons, Seahawks

Bears

  • Bears coach John Fox announced Wednesday that rookie Mitch Trubisky will be the team’s No. 2 quarterback for Week 1’s opener.
  • Mike Glennon will be the team’s starting quarterback with Mark Sanchez operating as their No. 3 quarterback.

Buccaneers

The final episode of “Hard Knocks” aired Tuesday night, which showed some of the Buccaneers’ final roster cuts.

The Buccaneers were hoping to sign WR Bobo Wilson and fifth-round RB Jeremy McNichols to their practice squad after clearing waivers, but Wilson decided to return home to Miami even though HC Dirk Koetter had asked him to stay around.

“Are you kidding me?” Bucs GM Jason Licht said when he was informed that Wilson had left town, via Pro Football Talk.

Licht said that this “might be the last straw” before adding: “I want to make a rational decision here, and not a [knee-jerk decision].”

I’m going to tell Bobo we want you on the practice squad; we want to work with you,” Koetter said. “But if you don’t change your attitude, you won’t make it anywhere. I’m going to tell him straight up: If he doesn’t change, he doesn’t have a chance. If he hesitates at all on coming back, then I’m going to say we’ll take [Donteea Dye].

As for McNichols, he told Koetter he wanted to be back with the team before deciding to join the 49ers’ practice squad.

McNichols got his feelings hurt,” Licht said. “If he’s going to mope and complain about being taken out of the game when he just made one mistake. I mean, we don’t want that kind of [expletive] anyway.”
