With the 2014 NFL Free Agency window now open, NFL teams and free agents can begin negotiating contracts this Saturday at noon. Defensive end Corey Wootton is one of the Chicago Bears’ 20 pending free agents that will be on the radar of other teams.
With injuries to key defensive players this past season, Bears coach Marc Trestman’s relied heavily on Wootton’s versatility and the fourth year vet didn’t disappoint. Wootton played multiple positions this season for the Bears and recorded 28 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 16 games this season—15 of which he started.
Wootton played college ball at Northwestern and was drafted by the Bears. Other than growing up in Rutherford, NJ, Chicago is what he knows. He’d like to stay in the Chi but realizes that the NFL is a business and knows that the Bears have a lot of decisions to make in the coming weeks.
With the NFL free agency frenzy underway, Corey Wootton checked in on Jocks Geeks and Gamers, a show co-hosted by The Source’s Brandon Robinson. Wootton discussed his free agency status, the NFL’s banning of the N-word and ACL injuries in sports.
