Bears-Patriots joint practices might lead to some awkward reunions

After he landed with New England, Bennett was asked if his relationship with the Bears took a turn for the worse. His response?

“I don’t know,” he said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “You have to ask them.”

Bennett never shies away from providing an honest quote and he has a history of slamming players at practice, so something could be had here.

Reunion No. 3: Brothers reunite

Kyle Long is one of the Bears’ best offensive linemen. Chris Long is the Patriots’ new defensive end.

Happy, brotherly energy is needed to balance out any negativity Cutler and McDaniels might create.

Honorable mentions:

Brian Hoyer reunites with the Patriots
John Fox and Bill Belichick meet again

And that’s a wrap for the preview of the most intriguing NFL practice of the summer.

“But yeah, I do get asked if he will come back. But he won’t. He won’t. He’s done,” the elder Manning told Jenny Vrentas. “He’s 40 years old, and I think he kind of knows the NFL is probably not the place for 40 year olds.”

Here’s the thing though: Manning can have two retirement press conferences (check), file retirement papers (check) and start doing all the things retired football players do (check).

But people are still going to wonder about whether he might come back as long as football hasn’t started. It’s just the nature of the business — Brett Favre was the subject of a million comeback rumors even after he left the game for multiple years.

About this time last week, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson made his annual offseason proclamation about the [surprising thing] he will do [at surprising age]. It’s a May tradition like no other.

This year’s bold claim involved Peterson breaking the historical mold of old running backs struggling after the age of 30 and vowing he’ll become even better as he ages

Peterson also mentioned the Vikings would stun the world in 2016 and have a good chance to “win everything.”

“We are going to have a good chance to win it this year — win everything,” Peterson said. “Sit back and watch. Sit back and watch. You can be like, ‘I thought you guys were at least a couple of years away.’ Nope. You sit back and watch, this year.”
