Much better situation for Bouagnon. The Packers have opportunities in the backfield. The Bears, although a dumpster fire for the most part, have good backs.

I'd like to see him bulk up. I think if he has a shot to stick in the NFL, it would be as a fullback or a goal line type power runner.

If the Green Bay Packers were the Starship Enterprise, Bouagnon would be wearing a red shirt. But he does have a foot in the door and a chance to prove himself, so I wish him all the best.
