While most eyes will be on the quarterback position this summer at Bears camp, veteran NFL writer Peter King disagrees that Mitchell Trubisky is the most interesting thing that will be happening in Bourbonnais.
King wrote Monday that he thinks the Bears' second-round pick, tight end Adam Shaheen, is a more intriguing storyline than Trubisky, the team's first-round pick.
King said he thinks Mike Glennon will get a good chance to be the Bears' starting quarterback over Trubisky but indicated Shaheen might have more of an impact right away.

I think one of the most interesting storylines of the summer camp season is going to be at Bears camp — and not necessarily how quickly Mitchell Trubisky can start a game. (I expect Mike Glennon to get a fair shot at keeping the quarterback job for the year.) But it's the Division II tight end, Adam Shaheen. He’s 6-foot-6 and 277 pounds, and the book on him coming out of Ashland (Ohio) College was that he's nimble.
While that doesn't provide much in the way of analysis on exactly what Shaheen will do with the Bears — nimbleness alone not always translating to NFL success — it does give fans another rookie to pay attention to besides just the one under center.
