Lions WR Burleson has 'something' for Chicago; Bears not worrying

Ya gotta love Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson. He will not sacrifice his art over a few measly shekels.

Burleson was fined 10,000 for an end-zone celebration consisting of flapping his arms like a bird and then simulating shooting up into the sky at the imaginary bird. The NFL deemed it too close to suggesting violence to an opponent, although Burleson countered that his gun could have been a Super Soaker water gun.

More to the immediate point, Burleson has no intention of curbing his expressions and even declared via the Detroit Free Press, Ill have something for Chicago. Im not going to stop celebrating.

The Bears have no intention of being Burlesons foil.

Oh, hes always doing something, scoffed nickel back D.J. Moore. Once he had boxing gloves. Hes one of those types of guys. I kind of like playing against him. Hes a little like Roy Williams signaling first down when he catches a pass. You dont know what hes going to do but Im not worried about him.

It's been a good winter for Glenbard North junior three-star ranked defensive back Tyrik Henderson (5-foot-10, 165 pounds). Henderson, who added his latest offer on Saturday from Minnesota, has continued to pile up multiple scholarship offers at an impressive rate heading into the all important spring evaluation period. 

Henderson, who also has been playing travel 7-on-7 this winter for Boom Midwest, is a fierce competitor took time from his busy schedule to take part in the annual Dodgeball Madness charity tournament along with some of his Glenbard North teammates. Henderson fills us in on some of his recent offers along with some recent college visit.

I caught up with Tyrik Henderson at the Fifth Annual Franklin Dodgeball Madness Tournament at Franklink Middle School in Wheaton. Proceeds from the tournament benefited the school, the DuPage Hundred Club, Team Red, White and Blue and The Pat Tillman Foundation.

First round

Scouting Report:

"Ascending edge prospect who racked up impressive TFL and sack numbers this year despite a relatively raw approach and skill set. He's a little stiff in his lower body, but flashes good athleticism once the ball is snapped. McKinley's motor is a translatable characteristic, but improved hand usage and pass rush mechanics are what could elevate his game to another level as a starting, 3-4 outside linebacker. " — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
