New Bears WR Allen Robinson mentioned that it’s been exciting to learn Matt Nagy’s offensive system.
“It’s been exciting,” Robinson said, via ChicagoBears.com. “We both have been born into this on the same page as far as learning a new system. I think that’s special in itself because we can just talk about certain things as we go. He’s a young guy and I think that’s really good as well. For me being 24 years old, we both kind of have that eager energy as far as coming into this situation and learning the system.”

Packers HC Mike McCarthy admitted that their locker room “wasn’t the best” last year and this is something they’re hoping to address this offseason.
“They did a good job to stick together, [but] we’re a little bit spoiled,” McCarthy said, via ESPN.com. “We have high expectations of our locker room, it’s been so strong for so many years. In comparison to the other 11 years [of McCarthy’s tenure], it wasn’t the best, clearly.
“Enough wasn’t done in the locker room, frankly. That’s something that when we get back together we’ll [do] more about that in specifics.”
McCarthy explained that it became clear from their exit interviews that changes needed to be made.
“It didn’t create any major issues or things like that,” McCarthy said. “I’d like to see some individuals step up more there, because that’s their room. That’s their space and their opportunity for the leadership to grow and be applied and excel and deal with things. When you’re dealing with things after the fact — I know when I sit down in exit interviews and I hear things that were not acted on or that you haven’t heard before, that’s a bad sign. We had a little too much information in the exit interviews.“
