You're not on scholarship anymore.
That's the advice I would give to Shea McClellin, Alshon Jeffery, Brandon Hardin and the rest of the Bears draft class. No more draft hype, high-fives or news conferences.
Those days are gone. You're just a rookie now....

Short of raising the Halas Hall practice field to a higher altitude, the Bears have done virtually everything possible to recreate the Denver experience for quarterback Jay Cutler....

Don't let an NFL rookie tell you he isn't nervous about reporting to his first pro training camp. Don't even entertain the idea. In fact, laugh it off.
He's lying to you.
This stuff is no joke. Make it through minicamp and OTAs? Big deal. That's a walk-...

Jay Cutler was asked to explain his NFL-best fourth-quarter ability.
