Former Manitoba Bison Israel Idonije, now a fixture in the Chicago Bears' defensive-line rotation, has been in the news for some of the community outreach he's been doing in his home province, Manitoba. There's been some news coverage in the past week or so of his good works, but there's been some more details about the mission to Nigeria he's undertaking with several NFLers, including Bears teammate Tommie Harris, Houston d-tackle Amobi Okoye, New York Giants pass rusher Osi Umenyiora and Oakland’s Nnamdi Asomugha.
