    Unless Ola has gained an awful lot of weight he's a little light in the pants to play OT or OG in the NFL. NFL.com has him listed at 6'3" 278lbs. More of a blocking TE I'd say.

    So they cut 2 to add 1? Anyone else noticing this? What position is getting a new addition?

    Apparently Trestman must know something that we don't about him. Even if it's for depth. That's what I'm thinking. At worst another camp body.

    He's now listed on the Bears roster as 6'4" 312lbs so that makes more sense. He wasn't listed the other day when I checked.
