Good morning and welcome to Bear Bites, your morning round-up of Bears news.
- Jerry Angelo still holds onto special draft advice that legendary coach Bill Parcells gave him about looking past the scouting reports and statistics. (Chicago Sun-Times)
- I wonder if Parcells told Angelo to lowball contract extensions for the Bears best assistant coach? A report says that's exactly what the Bears did to special teams coordinator Dave Toub.

- Former Bear Matt Bowen writes about his draft day experience, including the fear that he'd have to write a resume and who that no-name player was drafted after him. (Chicago Tribune)
- Walter Payton was ranked as the best number four overall draft pick of all time. No argument here, as it's rare that a draft pick from Jackson State will turn into the best running back of all time. (Associated Press)
