NFC Notes: Bears, Packers, Vikings


  • Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune writes the Bears could be considering former Washington RT Morgan Moses as a fallback option on the left side in case second-round OT Teven Jenkins isn’t ready to start there. 
  • Biggs notes there’s been little to no movement on contract talks for WR Allen Robinson. That could change as the July 15 deadline gets closer but Biggs still thinks the Bears’ receiver plays out 2021 on the tag. 
  • Bears HC Matt Nagy said Andy Dalton is currently getting first-team reps in OTAs, while Justin Fields works with the second-team and Nick Foles as the No. 3 quarterback. (Jeff Dickerson)


  • Regarding the possibility of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers getting traded this offseason, Ian Rapoport mentioned on that Pat McAfee Show that he doesn’t think “it’s a good possibility he gets traded at all.”
  • Rappoport points out that Green Bay likely would’ve gotten a deal done ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft if they were committed to trading Rodgers.
  • Packers HC Matt LaFleur said OT David Bakhtiari is a “little bit ahead of schedule” with his rehab from a torn ACL: “I think he’s a little bit ahead of schedule. Then again, there’s a long way until the start of the season.” (Matt Schneidman)
  • LaFleur added that Bakhtiari has stayed in “excellent shape” as he rehabs: “He’s really working hard. … He’s in excellent shape. We’re just going to take it one day at a time.” (Ryan Wood)
  • LaFleur said there is “nothing to update” regarding Rodgers and is unsure if the quarterback will attend next week’s mandatory minicamp: “I don’t know. We’ll see come Tuesday.” (Ryan Wood)


  • Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said DL Danielle Hunter did not appear at Wednesday’s OTAs: “We’ll see when minicamp comes.” (Andrew Krammer)
  • Vikings’ first-round OT Christian Darrisaw sat out Wednesday’s practice after pulling his groin muscle but is still “doing well.” 
  • Vikings OT Brian O’Neill, who is entering the final year of his contract, said he’s eager to sign a long-term deal with the team: “Nothing would make me happier than to be here long term.” (Courtney Cronin)
