(Fri, 28 Apr 2017 01:57:55 GMT)
The Bears’ aggressive decision to trade up and draft Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 pick won’t create a quarterback competition this summer and fall, general manager Ryan Pace said.  Pace made it clear that Mike Glennon, who the Bears signed in March, will be the team’s starting quarterback when they open the 2017 season Sept. 10 against the Atlanta Falcons.  “There’s no quarterback competition when Mitch gets here,” Pace said. “Glennon is our starting quarterback. We’ll focus on Mitch’s development and Mike Glennon winning games for the Chicago Bears.” Both Glennon and Trubisky, though, are no strangers to quarterback competitions — and coming out on the wrong side of them. Glennon, with the

"I'm beyond grateful. This is just a dream come true," said the 6-foot-5, 300-pound Bolles, whose journey to the NFL took longer than most. Bolles, who will turn 25 next month, led a troubled childhood, including drug use and jail time. "I always believed in myself and believed I could get here. I just didn't
