[FULL EPISODE] Caleb Williams & Rome Odunze officially sign their rookie contracts

7/16/2024
It's official! Bears first-round draft picks Caleb Williams and Rome Odunze have signed their rookie contracts and will report to training camp on time. Alongside Dan Wiederer, Adam Studzinski fills in for David Haugh as the guys react to the news. Was there a reason it took up until the day that rookies report for camp to get these two signed? Did Williams not having an agent slow the process at all? Also in this episode, Jaylon Johnson asked fans in a recent interview to "be patient" while the Bears get on their feet in 2024. We think it's an important message to keep in mind, as it's likely this team and its rookie quarterback will experience growing pains.

7/9/2024
Bears training camp is getting close, and the team's top two draft picks still haven't signed their rookie contracts. David Haugh and Dan Wiederer explain why they aren't worried about the contract status of quarterback Caleb Williams and receiver Rome Odunze ... yet.

Also in this episode, why do the betting markets seem to think the Bears are the favorite to sign former Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari? Would that make any sense for the Bears?
