The Bears had a light practice, only helmets and shorts, so not a ton of action today with the Hall Of Fame Game looming on Thursday. Robert was joined by The Bear Report’s Zack Pearson. Check out the video above (or click here to head over to our WCG Facebook page) for all the fun. They talked about the on field action, buy also discussed the post-practice press conferences, and went over the latest on the Roquan Smith situation. Even though it was essentially a walk-through, the team still had plenty of 11-on-11 action going on. Adam Shaheen had a couple of big red zone jump ball touchdowns, and this big 6’6” tight end will be a problem for defenses once the Bears get down near goal line. Rookie wide out Javon Wims also made some plays, but if they were keeping score http://www.bearscheapstores.com/adrian- ... rsey-cheap , this day would have gone to the defense again. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw some more interceptions, but that’s all part of his development and the process of learning a new offense. Head coach Matt Nagy said he has no concerns with the picks and he says Trubisky is having a good camp so far. One more note before we throw it to Twitter, inside linebacker Danny Trevathan was back at practice today.Report: Bears, Roquan Smith agree on helmet issue; behavioral clause the holdup now The Chicago Bears and 2018 first-round pick Roquan Smith have yet to come to terms on Smith’s rookie contract. The speculation in recent weeks has been that the two sides have disagreed on how to handle the rookie’s guaranteed money if he were to be suspended as a result of the NFL’s new helmet-leading rules. Now the lone draft pick to not have signed his rookie deal, Smith has missed training camp time and, more than likely, playing time in the preseason as a result.If a recent report is any indication, though, the new rules are not the issue that the sides are butting heads on.David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune wrote in an article on Wednesday that the Bears have in fact agreed to leave Smith’s guaranteed money alone if he were to be suspended for an illegal tackle. Now Cheap Cody Whitehair Jersey , the issue at hand relates to the rookie’s off-the-field behavior. His agency, CAA Football now wants to ensure that his contract shields him from any discipline that may potentially result from off-the-field issues.Haugh had this to say on the issue:As made evident by the new issue - as well as the discussions regarding the new helmet rule - CAA is aiming to make sure that their client is able to maintain as much of his contract as possible. The Bears, though, are afraid that giving in to such demands would make it the norm for players and agents to order for certain luxuries. As Haugh mentioned in his article, such an act is uncommon around the league today:The idea that Chicago and CAA were past the helmet-related issues was first proposed by Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times in Wednesday’s episode of the Hoge and Jahns podcast. Jahns did not state the new reasoning for the stalemate, but was the first to allude that guaranteed money was no longer the issue.Smith is projected to be a starter at inside linebacker for the Bears alongside Danny Trevathan upon signing his contract. With frustrations among the team’s fanbase escalating by the day, one can only hope that that signing occurs sooner rather than later.Jacob Infante is a Chicago Bears writer at SB Nation’s Windy City Gridiron.
