Jay Cutler’s impressive first practice was obviously the major storyline in the final practice before Thursday’s preseason opener against Atlanta. But this was No. 2:
Jakeem Grant’s emergence as a receiving threat. Grant has improved appreciably in the past week, and he caught two long touchdown passes on Tuesday - one from Brandon Doughty in team drills and one from Cutler in one-on-one drills.
And Grant revealed afterward that growing up as a teenager, he actually dreamed about catching balls from Cutler.
“For him to throw balls to me, it brings back childhood memories of me wishing I could catch a ball from him,” Grant said. “Today I did. He threw me a good one-on-one ball versus Walt [Aikens], led it right out there, and all I had to do was run under it, and that's exactly what I wanted to do as a kid. For him throwing me balls one-on-one and me catching a touchdown was like a dream come true. He is a great quarterback. It's an honor to be able to be on the same team as him.”
