CHICAGO - Chicago Bears tackle Levi Horn, Northern Cheyenne, is glad the football strike is over. He told Native News Network on Monday afternoon that the two player representatives have already cast their votes in favor of resolving the NFL strike that threatened the entire football season.
Horn said his teammates have been told to be in Chicago within the week to start practice. "Nothing is for sure yet, but we need to be here within the next week," explained Horn.
He says he stayed at his residence near Chicago so he could workout in a local gymnasium. Horn is a tackle, who was a standout at the University of Montana, whose height is 6'7" and weight is 325 pounds.
