As Taylor Gabriel remembered it, he begged for a job.
This was more than four years ago, before Gabriel caught three passes for 76 yards in Super Bowl LI with the Falcons. Before the Bears decided his upside was worth a four-year, $26-million contract. Before he set a career high with 104 receiving yards on seven catches in his fourth game in a Bears uniform.
Gabriel was an undrafted rookie tryout hoping to stick with the 2014 Browns.
“A camp body,” he said. “Somebody there to fill up the numbers so the draft picks don’t run out and hurt themselves.”
