Draft Scout Lamarr Houston News
06/06/14 - DE Lamarr Houston came to the Bears from the Raiders, he had a reputation for nastiness. It was one of the things the Bears said they liked.
Sure enough, Houston started off early in the second week of OTAs by getting into a skirmish -- the first one of Bears practices this year. It started when he was being blocked by tackle Jordan Mills, but then tight end Martellus Bennett got involved and carried most of the offensive side of the shoving and pushing. There were no actual punches thrown.
Bennett last year was involved in the worst fight of Bears camp, when he virtually took on the entire Bears secondary and key reserves on successive plays in a scrimmage.
"We're just competitive guys," said Houston, who downplayed it all. "We like to compete and compete to win. We're just so competitive and passionate about the game and sometimes things get a little heated out there.
"That's football. We just go back the next play and keep working. It's nothing personal."
Houston, who played at Texas, added that it had nothing to do with college rivalries, either. Bennett went to Texas A&M.
