BearReport Audio: Brandon Rideau

Brandon Rideau is still yet to catch his first NFL pass, but he comes to Bourbonnais as one of the more intriguing candidates to make the 53-man roster. The former Jayhawk looked very good in the offseason program and has seen his snaps increase. Rideau spent some time with after Friday's training camp practice, and subscribers can listen to that interview right here.

John Crist: Last season this team was trying to get to a Super Bowl. Now this team is trying to get back to a Super Bowl. What's the difference?

Brandon Rideau: The difference is we got a little bit more hungry. Because to get there and be that close and not make it, it's a worse feeling than just not making it completely. So getting there, that's what we did last year. We're not worried about that. We're worried about making sure we finish this year.
