Shark Bites

Bears WR Dazz Newsome broke his collarbone in Tuesday's OTA session, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Newsome will undergo surgery on Thursday but "should be ready right around the start of training camp," according to Pelissero. Although he's a 6th-round rookie, Newsome has a shot to win the Bears' slot receiver job -- especially if they find a trade partner for WR Anthony Miller. We'll keep an eye on Newsome's recovery from this injury.

Recent Shark Bites

Chicago selected UNC WR Dazz Newsome in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Newsome broke out for a 72-1,018-10 line back in 2019, beating Dyami Brown in catches and finishing just behind him in yards and TDs. He took a step back this past year, though, tallying 54 catches for 684 yards and 6 scores. And then he bombed his Pro Day, running a 4.59-second 40-yard dash with bottom-barrel agility scores at 5’10 and 190 pounds. We thought Newsome looked more athletic on tape, especially after the catch. But he’ll likely be pigeonholed as a slot receiver in the NFL. If that holds in Chicago, he could potentially step in early if the Bears trade away Anthony Miller (which has been rumored).
