Bears’ Toub expects strong special teams
Bears cornerback Corey Graham (21) led the team in special teams tackles last season, but many of his teammates on those unit are gone. Graham will join Sam Hurd this season as the two key figures on the kickoff team.

For some bizarre reason unknown to me this article will not copy in it's entirety so I'm posting the link to it. Here's a couple of the highlights.
Toub says that Podlesh and Hurd along with Graham were their major offseason targets as far as signing FA's for the ST's were concerned. I guess that's not surprising given that those were among the very first things the Bears did once FA began.
Sidebar: 4th is right. JA is a wizard at stocking our ST's. After Dlineman it's the first thing he thinks of, LOL.
Other items for interest; Podlesh is a directional punter much like Maynard but unlike Maynard the guy runs a 4.4 forty. Hurd and Graham will be the ST Gunners this year. Hurd has averaged 20 ST tackles a year over the past two seasons which ranks him right in there with Graham who had 25 last year and 21 in 2009.
