Great Article... I remember watching Bevell in that Rose Bowl. What about Andy Reid, Head Coach of the Eagles and Aaron Francisco DB I beleive with the Colts?

The Bevells were in my ward when they were a growing family. Good people. I'm happy to hear of his success.

What does exempt mean for Harvey Unga?

Exempt means:

Since making a solid appearance against the Buffalo Bills, Bears running back Harvey Unga has been excused from the team for personal reasons.

Now, according to a league source, the Bears will get a roster exemption for him.

With final cuts to 53 due Saturday, the Bears don't have to make a decision on Unga until he returns to the team.

Still, it seems Unga does not have a spot on the 53-man roster. Matt Forte and Marion Barber are locks, and Kahlil Bell is in an awfully strong position. Meanwhile, veteran Chester Taylor is counting the days until he's a former Bear. Via trade or release, Taylor will be gone by the weekend.

Unga, a seventh-round pick in the supplemental draft, is practice squad eligible, though.


Chris Miller, quarterback in the 80s with the university or Oregon and Pro Bowler with the Atlanta Falcons and current quarterback coach of the Arizona Cardinals is LDS . . . A convert within the last 5 years.
