Bears News: Cole Kmet on Caleb Williams: "He's really just a normal dude"

by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet is one of the leaders and well-respected members of the football team.

Kmet has played with quarterback Justin Fields previously and now has a new rookie quarterback, Caleb Williams, to work with as they try to get the offense rolling in 2024.

Kmet was interviewed on SiriusXM NFL Radio and shared that Williams is just a dude trying to find his way.

“That whole draft process was so interesting just because you’re hearing all these different things about him. But as I got to know him, and everyone else got to know him, he’s really just a normal dude. A really good kid. Ultra-competitive. And you can see why he’s been so successful thus far in his football career and why he has the types of intangibles to succeed in the NFL. I’m really excited for him. He’s been putting in a lot of work and you can see the progress he was making throughout the OTA period, so I’m really excited about him.

"Obviously, ultra-talented. I think as the people of Chicago get to know him more and more, the more they’ll get to like him.”

Kmet had a career year last season with 73 catches for 719 yards and six touchdowns.

Hopefully, that is just the start of things for Kmet and Co. as Williams becomes more comfortable throughout the upcoming season.
