Bear Report Audio: LB Nick Roach

The Bears were in need of a special teams contributor after Ade Jimoh was lost for the season on injured reserve, and a former Northwestern Wildcat got the call. Nick Roach spent some time with Bear Report in the locker room Thursday at Halas Hall, and subscribers can listen to that exclusive audio feature right here.

John Crist: Your best bet to contribute right away will be on special teams, and the Bears showed us once again Sunday why they have arguably the best special teams in the NFL. What do you know of coach Dave Toub, and are you all the more excited knowing his reputation?

LB Nick Roach: I knew that Coach [Steve] Crosby from San Diego actually knows Coach Toub here, and they were talking about each other kind of in the same way. That they're similar guys, and they like special team units to just play fast and make a lot of plays. And that's definitely what we have here.
