NFC North Notes: Bears, Lions, Vikings



Bears HC Matt Nagy says “it’s kind of like a kid in a candy store” regarding how they’ll use free agent acquisition Cordarrelle Patterson in his offense.  

“You see what he did in New England with the jet sweeps, the arounds, the screens, and I think that that’s a good fit for him,” Nagy said via NBC Sports’ J.J. Stankevitz. “But for me, it’s kind of like a kid in a candy store. You get to kind of pick which candy you like best, put it together and figure out what he does best.”


  • According to Neil Stratton, the Lions have parted ways with Director of Pro Scouting Brendan Prophett. Prophett had been with the team since after the 2016 draft.
