Meet the Rookies: Jaquan Brisker
“He’s an athlete. He plays violently. Thinking back to it, he was always a determined little kid. When I look at Dash from ‘Incredibles’ that’s how ‘Quan was.” – Mijhoni Brisker
The Bears dropped the second of this year’s three-part series “Meet the Rookies” with today’s episode profiling safety Jaquan Brisker, Chicago’s second pick in this year’s draft.
The first episode featured wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. and the third part of the installment on cornerback Kyle Gordon will air tomorrow.
