 CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Bears expect to see starting defensive end Alex Brown at their minicamp this weekend even though Brown says he's seeking a trade.
Brown told Sirius NFL Radio on Wednesday that he asked the Bears for permission to work out a trade. But coach Lovie Smith plans to have Brown at the three-day minicamp beginning Friday.
``I just know we have a minicamp coming up this weekend and Alex has been working awful hard with our program,'' Smith said. ``We'll see him there this weekend working out with us. So that's about all I can tell you right now.''
Brown admitted he's comfortable with the Bears, but is eager to explore other opportunities. Still, he has three years remaining on his contract.
``We're just trying to see what's out there,'' Brown said. ``That's what we're trying to do. It's not the Bears. They don't want to get rid of me. It's just that I want to see what else is out there.
``If it was up to me I'd get a new contract here and play the rest of my career here. I totally understand some of the things the Bears are saying. We're handling this in a real low-key fashion and that's the way we want to keep it.''
Brown had seven sacks last season in a very effective line rotation that helped Chicago reach the Super Bowl, where it lost to Indianapolis.
A fourth-round pick out of Florida in 2002, Brown signed a contract extension in 2004. He said when he broached the subject of a trade, the Bears told him, ``No way. We love you. We don't want to get rid of you.''
Added Brown: ``It took a while to even get them to talk about it.''
