New Bears WR Andy Fantuz has never played in the NFL and he is excited about his opportunity this upcoming season in Chicago. Here’s what Fantuz had to say about it:
“It was a tough decision, I had a great thing going and I was happy with what was going on. In sports and in any business you always want to reach the top level. If you reach the top level, you want to find a bigger business.
“It’s been a dream for me growing up in an Americanized community where we watched more NFL than CFL to reach the NFL. That was the end goal. I have nothing against the CFL or Sasketchewan, both the team and the league have been great to me. I’m going to miss them but I’m looking forward to this opportunity.”
“I like how the organization is tough-nosed and classy, I see myself having a good opportunity to make the team and I’m excited to come into camp and try.”
“This is a big step forward but I still have a long ways to go,” Fantuz said. “I just have my foot in the door. I have to fight for a position on the team now but it’s almost like a dream.”
“I personally see myself having a good opportunity,” he said.
