Nagy declined to specify which day the extremely-predicted announcement will occur, but he conceded it possible would be Monday or Wednesday.
“Honestly, we you should not know that,” Nagy claimed. “But it would be in that timeframe in there somewhere. You will know by the time most groups commonly know. We’re not hiding anything at all. We’re going by way of, for us, this complete process and we never even know that yet to be pretty genuine. So we are chatting via those people conditions and what is actually very best and how to go about it. So we’re just definitely truthfully not there yet.”
All set to roll: With the whole preseason cancelled thanks to COVID-19, rookies weren’t ready to gain valuable sport knowledge in progress of the common year. However, Nagy feels that next-round select Jaylon Johnson, a cornerback from Utah, is well prepared to move on the subject a week from Sunday in Detroit.
“I sense like he is prepared,” Nagy explained. “You can see his self-assurance that he has. You have to have shorter-phrase memory in this league. He’s obtained severe self confidence.
“And it is not cocky. It is self confidence. I like that about him. He is obtained a strategies to go. He has not performed an NFL activity. We are going to see. But in observe so far, I like in which he is at.”
One indication that Johnson is all set to engage in at the NFL degree came very last 7 days in practice when he intercepted a Nick Foles move.
“That was a veteran transfer that [Johnson] produced on that participate in,” Nagy reported. “A large amount of rookies, at that position in time, enjoy it a very little bit otherwise. With no giving out as well significantly things on the engage in, that was all instincts. That participate in he manufactured was all instincts. As a make a difference of truth, Foles requested immediately after the engage in, ‘How did you know that that participate in was coming?’ He said it was just instincts. Nick was surprised due to the fact he believed it’s possible his defensive coaches had been scouting the perform, telling him to drop off and make that decide on. It was all instincts.”
Subsequent men up: Given that beginning running back again David Montgomery suffered a groin personal injury very last 7 days in exercise, Nagy has been amazed with how the Bears’ other backs have picked up the slack.
The group features Tarik Cohen, Ryan Nall, Cordarrelle Patterson and undrafted rookies Artavis Pierce and Napoleon Maxwell.
“We like the place we are at,” Nagy mentioned. “Naturally, we like it much more when David is in there. But these guys I believe have seriously taken on their role and what we are striving to do in that space. We needed to make certain that for distinct explanations very last yr, we desired to strengthen our run video game. They realized that. The offensive line, coach [Juan] Castillo, [assistant offensive line coach] Donny Raiola, [running backs] coach [Charles] London, they are genuinely focused on performing jointly. Hopefully, we can get that matter going this yr.”
