Top Bears training camp story lines, just wait for them

Ah, training camp. A magical time for football players when they can bond, sweat, block and do who knows what else to prepare for the season. You'll hear a lot out about position battles and Jay Cutler's mindset over the next few weeks. Then there are the other stories from camp, which we're boldly predicting right now.

Most likely to excel at arts and crafts: Martellus Bennett

He paints, he writes children's books—of course he can make something cool out of yarn.

Least likely to get a break from reporters: Jordan Lynch

When you're a former Heisman finalist and a local guy trying to make the local team, everybody wants a slice.

Most likely to sneak out after curfew: Kyle Long

He got kicked off a high school field last week, so clearly he's not scared to break the rules.

Most likely to work on his tan: Jay Cutler

Dude, he totally just held a bodacious charity beach volleyball tournament last weekend. (No, we're not sure why that sentence sounded like Michelangelo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But we're not sorry.)

Most likely to drive into Chicago during his downtime: Alshon Jeffery

Signing autographs at his fiancee's boutique or coming or going from the store, now's your chance.

Most likely to win a fashion show: Kyle Fuller

Named best dressed at the NFL Draft by Esquire, let's give this one to the rookie. Look out, Brandon Marshall.

Most like to release a workout video: Matt Forte

Weights, hill work, repeat. Walter Payton would be proud.

Least likely to miss the season opener: Lance Briggs

Briggs has been on his #worstbehavior since May 31 counting down the days until kickoff of football season. Don't you just love Twitter?

Most likely to join a pickup football game: Brandon Marshall

Because that actually happened. Just a few days ago, he pulled over to join a few kids playing football. Maybe you'll be next. (Check out the video on Marshall's Instagram feed.)

Most likely to beat you in fantasy football: Robbie Gould

The kicker has been spreading free fantasy football advice (just so happens it's all about the Bears).
