Caleb Williams emphatically greets new teammate Rome Odunze after being drafted

Caleb Williams reacted with tons of energy when he watched the Bears draft Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze.

And he kept the energy with him when the new Bears quarterback finally got to greet his new receiver.

"Rome Odunze! It's time, baby! Let's do it, baby! We about to turn up, man," Williams cheered.

It's the making of a brand-new duo in Chicago.

The pairing of Williams and Odunze in the draft was the most prominently believed outcome for the Bears. In fact, Williams, Odunze, Moore and Allen recently met in Los Angeles for a throwing session.

Odunze prognosticated the prowess a Bears offense including him and Williams could have on the Under Center podcast, too.

“I think it would be explosive, honestly," Odunze said of teaming up with Williams in Chicago. There are a lot of weapons on that field, and it would be hard for any defense to stop that honestly with any sort of double coverage or focusing on one defender, kind of like exactly what I had in Washington. I know how to fit into something like that.”

Odunze and Williams have talked about teaming up in Chicago, too.

"Yeah, definitely," Odunze said on the latest episode of The Under Center Podcast when asked if he and Williams have discussed teaming up. "I think he's a fan of my wide-receiver play, and I'm a fan of his quarterback play. We've chatted very smally about the possibility of it. Going into Chicago and not with any timidness but going in there to play ball and make an immediate impact which I think would be awesome if it ends up being the situation that both of us are in."
