NEW PODCAST: Trey Burton, Chicago Bears Tight End

THIS IS EPISODE 154 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

In March 2018, Trey Burton signed a four-year deal with the Chicago Bears to be their starting tight end.

One month earlier, he helped facilitate the biggest play in Philadelphia Eagles history: the “Philly Special,” in which he threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles, helping his team defeat the Patriots for the first Super Bowl in Philadelphia history.

Now, Burton is focused on his new role as tight end with the Chicago Bears. On Monday, he scored his first touchdown as a Bear, helping Chicago to a 24-17 win over the Seahawks.

Burton, a contributor to Sports Spectrum’s The Increase, also announced on Monday that he would donate $1000 for every reception he makes and $2000 for every touchdown he scores to International Justice Mission to help combat human trafficking and sex slavery.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Burton about transitioning from Philly to Chicago, what faith looks like in the locker room of the Bears as compared to the Eagles, battling anxiety, and why he’s so passionate about bringing awareness to human trafficking.
