There's a lot of buzz surrounding the Chicago Bears with OTA's underway. Thanks to Matt Nagy's new offense and some free agent signings, the Bears look like they could be quite the exciting team to watch when they have the ball. One of the players most excited about Nagy's arrival is second year running back, Tarik Cohen. «I'm everywhere on the field right now, so there's no telling the things I'm going to be doing,» Cohen said. «It's really just back to the natural game of football; backyard football. You're every position; that's why I'm having so much fun.»
Cohen is really happy about Nagy's dynamic offense which won't just see him rushing the ball. «On a scale of 1-10, the dangerous level is probably 12,» he said. «Because in backyard football, it's really anything goes, and it's really whoever gets tired first, that's who's going to lose. If you're in good shape … and I'm running around pretty good out here, so I feel like I'm doing a good job.»
His new head coach is just as excited and looks to have a lot of confidence in Cohen. «He's actually the one kid on this team that I knew had a lot of talent,» Nagy said. «(And) he comes out here and runs every route the right way, catches most balls, and he doesn't make a lot of mistakes. You see how he is in the meetings rooms -- he listens to the play, and when he comes out here, (you see) how serious he is (but) he knows how to have fun. He's a player that (it's easy) for me you get giddy about.»
