Modifications for the new bear gambler begin

New Bears player Trenton Gill can’t do much now to show how he will adapt to the tough climate at Soldier Field, but he has already shown that he can change parts of his game.

He did so with the help of Special Teams Coordinator Richard Hightower.

“He knows a lot, he knows a lot about kicking,” Gill said of Hightower. “Most special teams guys are more special teams, and they don’t really understand the full aspects of the specialists.”

By this, Gill meant the coordinators knew how to organize the teams’ special returns, coverages, blocking, tackles and other aspects but not the actual kicking or shooting of the ball.
