CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears have a wide-open competition at safety so far in training camp. Dale Hawerchuk Jersey . Through the first eight days of practices, the Bears have used several veterans at filling both safety spots. And its possible some players who are not even dressed at this point will be part of the mix before camp concludes. The Bears defence dropped to 30th in the league last season and the safety play lacked consistency both in pass coverage and stopping the run. Former New York Giant Ryan Mundy, rookie Brock Vereen, former Dallas Cowboy Danny McCray and 34-year-old former Arizona Cardinal Adrian Wilson have all been tried at the starting safety spots in camp. "The rationale is its an open competition, were going to move people around, and youre going to see that throughout training camp and the exhibition season," coach Marc Trestman said. Vereen and Mundy played the spots with the starters through most of organized team activities and in the first five days of camp. Then Trestman put Vereen with the reserves and put McCray alongside Mundy. McCray was largely a special teams player in four years with Dallas and had 10 starts, all in 2012. "Its a big opportunity," McCray said. "I think thats what were all here for -- open competition. Theyre just rolling people around to see who can make plays. "Everybody has an equal chance. Theyve shown that throughout OTAs and minicamp." Its not surprising to Mundy that McCray would get consideration even if he was regarded chiefly a special teams acquisition. "He brings a high level of energy to the game," Mundy said. "Hes very active around the ball. He knows how to get the ball out and thats something that we value here in our defence -- getting the ball out." Vereen said he cant be too concerned about being moved to the second team after so much time spent with the starters. "In my mind, Im still a rookie who has to prove he belongs on the 53-man roster," the fourth-round pick from Minnesota said. "Im far too young to even worry about starting, not starting, whatever. In my mind I still need to prove Im worthy of being on this team." Looking at all the veterans, Vereen acknowledged hed like to be a starter from Day 1. "But these guys have been here three, four, shoot, 10 years," he said. "Im in catch-up mode. Thats the mindset I want to have." Each player has had strong practices followed by struggles against a Bears offence that has operated more efficiently from the outset of camp in Trestmans second year. Wilson was a late arrival, signing June 23 and missing all of the off-season workouts. He needed the time as hes been recovering from heel surgery. Wilson made five Pro Bowls and had 27 interceptions with the Arizona Cardinals. "I think what Adrian has done, hes kind of worked himself back into playing football, and weve kind of just stood back and allowed him to acclimate himself on not only whats going on in the classroom, but let him get his feet underneath him on the field," Trestman said. Wilson said hes playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder after seeing reports and hearing many regarding him as washed up. Bears general manager Phil Emery saw possible value in him. "I think Mr. Emery gave me a chance," Wilson said. "I think its a low risk for them, high reward. So Im looking forward to the opportunity." Former Green Bay Packer M.D. Jennings has been playing largely with the third team, and two other Bears have yet to join practices. Last years free safety starter, Chris Conte, is on the physically unable to perform list because of shoulder surgery, and backup/special teams player Craig Steltz is also on PUP due to groin surgery. Conte is in the final year of his contract after starting 40 games in three seasons. Defensive co-ordinator Mel Tucker is looking for more consistency from Vereen, but its something all the safeties have to show after the secondary allowed more completions of 20 yards or more (59) than all but six teams. "As we stack more and more practices on and we add more defences and schemes and things like that and now the question becomes can you do it day in and day out at a high level, with the young guys," Tucker said. "And those guys have to prove that. "And not only the young guys, but when you look at veteran guys, you want to see if guys can still do it. Thats a big part of it. Can you still do it on a consistent basis at a winning level? Were all out here to prove that. And thats the challenge." Buffalo Sabres Jerseys . Rob Klinkhammer and Mikkel Boedker scored 63 seconds apart in the first period for the Coyotes, who handed the Kings their third straight loss and took over sole possession of eighth place in the Western Conference. Mike Smith made 36 saves. Conor Sheary Jersey . "If we could score a six in every game, obviously I would be pretty excited," Jones said. "Its a long week but a short week. Its a pretty short round robin from what were used to so you dont want to get behind the eight ball early. http://www.authenticsabrespro.com/Jack-eichel-sabres-jersey/ . 15-23, the Ottawa Senators will by hoping to avoid going five straight games without a victory for the first time since a 0-3-2 drought from Oct.MAYS LANDING, N.J. - Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has received initial approval to enter a court program that could result in dismissal of an assault charge against him in New Jersey. The decision announced Tuesday relates to an aggravated assault charge Rice faces following a Feb. 15 incident with his then-girlfriend in an Atlantic City casino elevator. The couple married a day after Rice was indicted. Atlantic County acting prosecutor Jim McClain said the decision was made after his office "considered all relevant information." The pretrial intervention program allows for charges to be dismissed against first-time offenders who participate in it aand meet certain conditions. Thomas Vanek Jersey. A judge must give final approval before Rice can enter the program. If convicted of the charge, Rice could face three to five years in prison. Originally, Rice and his then-girlfriend, Janay Palmer, were each charged with simple assault after authorities said he assaulted her at the Revel Casino. But the Atlantic County prosecutors office reviewed the case and dropped the charge against Palmer. A grand jury lodged the more serious charge of aggravated assault against Rice in March. He had entered a not guilty plea during a court hearing on May 1, the day he filed his application for the pretrial intervention program.
