Those battles could turn out to be very interesting. They don’t have quite as much depth at cornerback, but there should be a fight for the nickelback job there. For complete analysis of the Bears’ biggest training camp battles click here. Rookie and UDFA Watch David Banks-USA TODAY Sports Over the last couple of seasons, the Bears have done a good job of bringing high-caliber athletes into their camp. This year, they drafted a very athletic group and welcome one of the most intriguing collections of undrafted free agents in recent memory. Their draft picks Kyle Long, Jon Bostic, Khaseem Greene, Jordan Mills, Cornelius Griffin and Marquess Wilson tested out well physically. There’s no question they have the talent to play in the NFL , it will be up to the coaches to help them along and up to themselves to work hard. Much like their draft class, the undrafted group the Bears brought in is also very talented. Very few of them lack in either size or speed, which should make them interesting to watch.

Webcams offer glimpse into lives of Alaska’s Katmai brown bears

He was a fourth-round pick of the Carolina Panthers in 2009 and has done little in the NFL since. He has proved to be mostly a workout warrior as he’s struggled when he has played. In an interview with ESPN Chicago , head coach Marc Trestman indicated that Fiammetta was signed for his ability to play special teams. If Fiammetta isn’t able to contribute as a lead blocker and isn’t one of the better special teams players, why use up a roster spot? The Bears could likely find a veteran fullback or just go without a player at the position. Instead, they can use a tight end as an H-Back and a reserve lineman as a short-yardage blocker. The Bears have options with this position, and Fiammetta is going to have to impress to be one of them.

Famed Katmai brown bears ready for season 2

One is underwater, trying to provide images of the salmon or the bear’s feet as they run by, or possibly a bear’s head as it goes into the water trying to catch a salmon. The second camera is positioned a little higher to catch the bear’s actions. “This year is all about trying to bring some more interactivity to the web cams, trying to engage the visitors more, facilitate them taking snapshots and sharing with one another,” said Roy Wood, chief of interpretation at Katmai. The snapshots are essentially screen grabs of what people are seeing on their computers. Both the positioning of the new cameras and the snapshot ideas came from Charles Annenberg, the creator of explore.org, which is underwritten by the Annenberg Foundation. He wanted to recreate what people do every day when they are out enjoying nature. “What is everyone doing but taking photos every second, and then you sit back at night and look at them,” he said.

It’s not quite Jersey Shore, but these are among the highlights of the second season of an Internet reality show Link coming your way this week. The stars are the brown bears of Katmai National Park and Preserve in remote Alaska. Eight webcams, an increase of five from last year, have been set up at various parts of the park to livestream the daily life and drama of the park’s famed bears. Social aspects also have been enhanced, with live web chats planned with rangers and scientists, and a new photosharing feature. “We know that Katmai is a cost-prohibitive place to visit so not a lot of people get the opportunity to come here,” park ranger Michael Fitz said. “We still want people to have an understanding of what Katmai is like, and enjoy, especially enjoy the brown bears that are here, so explore.org is able to partner with Katmai to provide many different webcams along the Brooks River so you have a chance to watch the bears and have an opportunity to experience their lives,” Fitz said. About 10,000 people a year visit the park about 250 miles west of Anchorage, which is only accessibly by float plane. Katmai is on the Alaska Peninsula, across the Shelikof Strait from Kodiak Island. Among the new camera views this year will be another angle from Brooks Falls, where bears – as many as four abroad one day last week- stand in the water and try to catch salmon travelling upriver to spawn. The new camera is at eye level of the bears, a perspective that neither rangers nor visitors see.
