Chicago Bears tight end Greg Olsen is running out of places to train. He’s been locked out of the team’s facility, and now he’s been booted from a local high school field, according to ESPNChicago.com.
“The other day I got kicked off a high school field trying to go out and do some field work, so it’s not easy,” Olsen said Thursday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “You have to find your spots and find someone that will let you use their field.
“[Players] already have done some research on some different places, and maybe as it gets a little closer [to training camp] if it looks like that’s what we’re going to have to do not being able to go over to Halas, then we’ll have to continue to look at different opportunities.”
One of those places is not likely to be Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Ill.
“I live right down the street from Stevenson,” Olsen said. “The other day I went out there, done it a bunch of times, and all of a sudden they kicked me off. I tried calling everyone over there to see if I could, and no one would call me back.”
Naturally, we enlisted theScore’s photoshop maestro, Mike Tinning, for an unofficial rendering of what took place:
