Breaking sports news video. MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL highlights and more.

Watch this two handed slash from Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger as he hacks Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille. In looking at the video I thought that warranted more than a two minute penalty.

Chicago Bears first-round pick Gabe Carimi and his family made their way to Halas Hall to visit the members of the Bears organization. Carimi made his way through the building meeting all of the Bears organization including the media.

Carimi had lots of good thing to say about the Bears, here’s what he had to say:

“I think this is a great organization,” he said. “This is the perfect fit for me. I wouldn’t see myself anywhere else.”

“We have O-linemen here who are tough,” he said. “I’m going to play with them and hopefully we’ll have a nastiness to our offensive line.”

Bears second-round pick Stephen Paea and third-round pick Chris Conte will be flying in this afternoon.

Bears last pick in the sixth-round at 195 is moments away from being announced. More news to come on that player.

The Bears got a developmental QB in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Nathan Enderle from the University of Idaho has a lot of potential.

So much potential that Mike Martz was among 10 talent evaluators to visit University of Idaho’s pro day back in mid-March. Temperatures were in the low 40′s on that day, so you know Martz and the other talent evaluators were interested in this kid Enderle.

Enderle, listed at 6’5″, 240 lbs threw for over 10,000 and 74 touchdowns in his four years at Idaho. Enderle however threw 60 interceptions in that time. Last season, he completed a career high 271 passes for 3314 yards, 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

Enderle is a pocket passer, but doesn’t have the greatest arm. His arm is said to be average, so he will likely use short and intermediate to his advantage.  Enderle improved his accuracy every season at Idaho, in 2010 he completed 56.9 percent of passes.

Does anyone believe him? Color me cynical and forgive me if I don’t believe him. What is with the media trying to remake the image of Mat Cooke, his image is what it is… Matt Cooke is one of the dirtiest and most despised players in the NHL. Does anyone think that Matt Cooke will no longer be a head hunter on the ice looking to take out another opponent with a dirty hit? I will be the first one to applaud him if he can change.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review —- Penguins general manager Ray Shero made it clear Friday that left wing Matt Cooke will remain with the team next season.

Cooke made it clear he is a new man and will become a new player.

Conte played his first three seasons at the University of California as a cornerback. Last season, was Conte’s first playing time at free safety and it paid off, he was named to the first-team All Pac-10.

In 50 career games at Cal, Conte made 17 starts, 157 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

Last season, as a starter at the free safety position, Conte made 72 tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception. Conte also blocked a punt which he returned six yards for a touchdown.

Conte, 6’2″, 199 lbs should fit in well with the Bears defense. Conte has good balance, agility and and speed in coverage.
