Passionate Bears wide receiver Javon Wims rising to the challenge

Bears wide receiver Javon Wims lost his mind for a moment Tuesday — throwing a flurry of haymakers at cornerback Prince Amukamara in a practice altercation. But one bad day can’t obscure the reality that Wims has been one of the Bears best receivers in camp and one of their most improved players.

Wims, the 2018 seventh-round draft pick from Georgia, has responded to the roster challenge he faced when the Bears signed Cordarrelle Patterson in free agency, drafted Riley Ridley in the fourth round and signed prime undrafted free agent Emanuel Hall in the offseason.

“Competition brings out the best or worst in you,” the 6-4, 215-pound Wims said.
