Over the weekend, the Chicago Bears held their rookie minicamp at Halas Hall, drawing both rookies and a few seasoned veterans to the field for their first official practice session.

Highlighting the event were quarterback Caleb Williams and wide receiver Rome Odunze. Their rapport was evident during Friday's session, marking them as standout performers. Despite Odunze sitting out on Saturday due to a hamstring issue, the duo's connection, particularly Chicago's top-10 draft picks, was palpable.
The minicamp wasn't just for the drafted and undrafted signees; it also included players attending on a trial basis. Impressively, several tryout attendees caught the coaches' eyes, leading to the signing of six players:
1. John Jackson (WR)
- Team: USC Trojans
- Height: 6-1
- Weight: 215 lbs
2. Leon Jones (DB)
- Team: Arkansas State Red Wolves
- Height: 6-1
- Weight: 195 lbs
3. DaShaun Mallory (DT)
- Team: Arizona State Sun Devils
- Height: 6-1
- Weight: 275 lbs
4. Paula Moala (LB)
- Team: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
- Height: 6-0
- Weight: 229 lbs
5. Freddie Swain (WR)
- Experience: Veteran
- Team: Florida Gators
- Height: 6-0
- Weight: 199 lbs
6. Tommy Sweeney (TE)

- Team: Boston College Eagles

These signings from the minicamp trials signify the Bears' proactive approach in bolstering their roster with fresh and experienced talent.
