The Chicago Bears have auditioned a few DBs at the nickelback spot this year, and now there is another candidate in Marcus Hamilton. Bear Report caught up with Hamilton in the locker room at Halas Hall before practice Wednesday, and subscribers can listen to that exclusive audio feature right here.

John Crist: Before the 2007 draft when you were taken in the seventh round, I was down at the Senior Bowl, I was down at the combine, and I know that the Bears did express some interest in you at that time. Were they one of the teams you were expecting to hear from once you got put on waivers again?

Marcus Hamilton: To be honest with you, I didn't know. I didn't know what the situation was here. I just knew that I wanted to be able to play somewhere. So I wanted to go put some good stuff on tape, and whoever saw the tape that was interested in me, that's what would happen.

Be sure to listen to the rest of JC's interview with cornerback Marcus Hamilton, an exclusive for Bear Report subscribers ...
