Slauson honored Tuesday afternoon

Chicago Bears Guard/Center Matt Slauson was honored after being awarded the Ed Block Courage award, an honor that the players vote on.  They are asked to recognize a peer who exhibits professionalism and dedication while being a positive role model in the community.

The Bears have a lot of decisions to make concerning the upcoming draft.  After the hiring of John Fox as the new Head Coach of the team, it was clear that going into the season with Jay Cutler leading the team is not a viable option, so the possibility of drafting University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is becoming more and more fathomable.
