SJ Sports Report: Bears Rookie and Former RU Standout Khaseem Greene Calls in
The Rutgers University football program had 7 players drafted in last month's NFL Draft, a school record.
One of those players, Khaseem Greene, who the Bears selected in the fourth round called 'The South Jersey Sports Report Weekday Edition' and talked with Tyler Donohue about his experiences at Piscataway and his first rookie camp in Chicago.
"I did look in the mirror with my Bears helmet on, I got a chance to do that," Greene said.
Greene is also very close with Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers player who was tragically paralyzed in a game against Army in 2010, the two were roommates at Rutgers and have remained very close.
"When he went down, it was like a blood brother going down, but he never complains about anything," Greene said.
Greene was a 2-time defensive player of the year in the Big East, 2012 first-team All-American and attended Elizabeth High School in Elizabeth, NJ.
