May 1st, 2017

CHICAGO, IL – After a less than stellar draft showing, the Chicago Bears personnel have revealed that a number of newly drafted players have sought professional help in dealing the emotional prospect of being drafted to the team.

“We were informed early on that most of our drafted players have taken steps to meet with team counselors and several of them have begun receiving therapy for emotional distress after the draft over the weekend.” An anonymous employee told The Cob Monday afternoon.

As the NFL draft continued into the weekend, several unfortunate incidents were brought to light, including reports of drafted players yelling, “No! No! Anything but that NO!” as their names were called during the Bears selection.

“As of Monday we haven’t heard back from several of our players, we’ve heard rumors that some have even skipped over the border and have tried to join the Canadian Football League.” The anonymous tipster concluded.

With last years 3-13 season looming over the upcoming season, fans are left scratching their heads, some going as far as converting to Green Bay Packers fans in the process.

As for the Bears, the team’s official statement was, “Meh, we’ll see what happens.”
