Bears rookie safety turning heads practice!

BEARS ROOKIE SAFETY TURNING HEADS AT PRACTICE!

AUG 4, 2022  (10H53)      V. CARBONNEAU
Rookie safety Jaquan Brisker has flashed playmaking abilities early and often in training camp, breaking up passes or jumping into routes. But in Wednesday's practice, Brisker felt that he took a huge step.

"Today, I broke on a ball with my eyes," Brisker said. "I feel like last week I wasn't too good with my eyes. I was just looking at the quarterback. But today I made a huge improvement in traffic today. I cut across the middle of the field. Should have been a pick. But I broke on it with my eyes and got a deflection."

'We have a lot of different takeaway drills and team reps also," Brisker said. "Just always scooping up the ball and running 10 stripes. Just always make sure we're doing something that involves turnovers, whether that's ball in the air, we're breaking at a 45-degree angle, or just scooping it in and tapping it back to our teammates. Just make sure we've got the ball in our hands. They always emphasize it in individual and team reps."

HC Matt Eberflus has been impressed with Brisker's speed and ability to change gears quickly while maintaining great control of his body. Brisker's compatibility with Jackson also has Eberflus excited about the defensive back room.

"They do complement each other," Eberflus said of Brisker and Eddie Jackson. "I think they're both versatile. They can play low, both guys can capture tight ends in coverage, I like that part of it. And both guys are good deep players. You know a lot of times you don't have that in the NFL. You have really a guy who's a good down player and a good deep player and I believe both of them are good at both and that leaves you a lot of versatility defensively."

Brisker also mentioned that he feels the practice's intensity is ramping up as training camp goes along.

"You could feel it in the air. You could feel it all around." Brisker said. "The energy's just different. We're all on the same page. We're all moving with a different swagger. And we're just going to continue to get better. It's only Day 2 or Day 3. We're just gonna keep going. That swag's gonna keep going. And that energy's just gonna keep going up. That's gonna cause a lot of turnovers and for us to look great out there."

As for his goals, here is what he said:

"Take this team to the playoffs, that's one thing," Brisker said of his team goals. "Win a Super Bowl and then the individual success is gonna come, so whatever comes with it is gonna come, so I really don't think about stuff like that too much. I just let it flow."
