Fellow Chicago Bears Linebacker: 'Roquan Is A Baller'


Georgia fans already know this: Roquan Smith is going to be really, really good in the NFL.

Bears fans, however, don’t know this yet.

Why would they? The team’s first round pick is yet to play a preseason game and it’s unlikely he will play Thursday night against the Bills as a result of a strained hamstring.

Chicago fans, if you’re reading this: Relax, there’s no need to worry. Put the stolen iPad behind you, kick the contract holdout to the curb and don’t be discouraged about Smith’s current hamstring strain.

If you won’t listen to me (and the rest of Georgia fans), maybe you will listen to Smith’s teammate, fellow linebacker Sam Acho.

“Since OTAs, maybe people forgot, but he was here for like a month-and-a-half and we were gelling, hanging out,” Acho told the Bears official website. “He understood the defense. He has the playbook and he gets it. He’s a guy who keeps his body in great shape. Obviously reps are important. We get that. He’s been getting those [in practice] and he’s been getting the mental reps as well. Sometimes those are huge, too.

Acho is entering his fourth season in Chicago and 8th in the NFL, and surely he is excited to line up next to Smith, a future star.

“Roquan’s ready. Roquan is a baller. You saw when he came in in OTAs. The first day he picked up the defense; making plays, interceptions, forced fumbles, sideline-to-sideline. I believe in him. I know he’s ready.”
