Steven Turner, wide receiver and special teams ace of the Bishop's Gaiters - has been invited (not signed) to the Bears mini-camp after he didn't get drafted this past weekend.  He also spoke to the Eagles and Colts before settling on the Bears invite.

His stats at CFL Evaluation Camp.  (where he broke or nearly matched almost every record)

40-yard dash: 4.31 seconds
Shuttle run: 4.03 seconds
Vertical: 43.5 inches

2009 Stats: Avg. Punt Return 20.4 yards, 2 TDs

His 40-yard dash time and vertical jump would've placed him second in both events at the NFL combine.

Who doesn't take a 7th round flyer on this kid?!  (Al Davis where you at?) 

Some of the return fun starts at 5:43.

This is a situation were a guy with a little above average skills and speed takes it to a bunch of below average players on the field. He is fast but in the NFL the tacklers wrap up even better than the players in the video and they got him most of the time. Good luck to him.

good luck to him! although the competition may not have been the best, he deserves a chance just like everyone blocked from televised games, BCS bowls and expensive PR campaigns.

WORST PUNTING EVER!  The guy was returning 20 yard punts!!! And the tackling was atrosious. Sorry. Not sold.

To heck with this kid, I say sign the ref that kept up with him on the return around 6:30.

coverage?

His speed does look relatively impressive, but what is the deal with the coverage on those kicks?  The kickoff coverage on the kick he ran back was particularly awful.  Did anyone stay in their lane?

WOW Did the Bears just snag the Canadian Hester?!

Most of the returns are in the last two minutes, including 3 TDs I believe.

Great speed! His obvious strength is returning punts/kicks. I saw a handful of TD's on the returns....

4.31 but always gets caught in the evaluation tape.  No TD's in tape.

Who is the QB - one mobile guy who runs for his life well!
