 Latest Bears Player Notes
Jul 19 2017 - Mitchell Trubisky
  QB Mitchell Trubisky, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, signed a four-year contract with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday. Bears general manager Ryan Pace traded multiple picks to swap spots with the San Francisco 49ers in April, sliding up to select Trubisky even after signing Mike Glennon to a three-year deal with $18.5 million guaranteed this season. Trubisky's contract is on par with 2016 No. 2 pick Carson Wentz, who landed a fully guaranteed four-year, $26.67 million deal.


Jun 13 2017 - Cameron Meredith
  WR Cameron Meredith continued missing practice Tuesday with a thumb injury suffered during OTAs. The team hopes to avoid surgery with the injury and hopes to have him ready for the start of camp, so he won't participate in minicamp.


Jun 13 2017 - Mike Glennon
  QB Mike Glennon was picked off early in Tuesday's scrimmage by linebacker Jerrell Freeman. Overall, the passing game struggled but did work in one touchdown on a catch-and-run by Victor Cruz. Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton also had longer catches, and Kevin White experienced a strong day overall. "I think there's going to be good days and bad days," Glennon said. "There's a lot of moving parts, but overall there's been a lot of growth."


Jun 13 2017 - Kyle Long
  G Kyle Long had ankle surgery during the offseason and it was a severe injury. He is taking longer to come back and lost weight to take pressure off his leg. "He did some explosion work this past week," coach John Fox said. "He's right on target. We still got some time after this is over, six to seven weeks. It'll be touch-and-go whether he's ready for the first day of training camp or maybe early on in camp. But he's doing well."


Jun 13 2017 - Danny Trevathan
  LB Danny Trevathan wasn't practicing Tuesday, but was visible on site for the first time during off-season work. Trevathan's 2016 season ended due to a ruptured patellar tendon.


May 30 2017 - Connor Shaw
  QB Connor Shaw was waived by the Bears on Tuesday, but that move was rescinded after QB Mark Sanchez injured his left knee.


May 30 2017 - Mark Sanchez
  QB Mark Sanchez of the Bears injured his left knee during organized team activity workout and will be sidelined until the start of training camp. The nature of Sanchez's injury wasn't detailed in initial reports. Sanchez is expected to compete with No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky for the backup quarterback role. Mike Glennon is slated to be the starter. Training camp begins on July 27.


May 30 2017 - William Poehls
  T William Poehls worked with the Bears' first-team offensive line at right guard with Kyle Long rehabbing and backup Eric Kush unavailable. The guard shortage also meant first-team time for reserve guard Cyril Richardson. At the least, it bulked up the Bears line. Poehls is 334 pounds and Richardson 343.


May 30 2017 - Hroniss Grasu
  C Hroniss Grasu (knee) continued to work on the side during Bears OTAs rehabbing after surgery.


May 30 2017 - Josh Sitton
  G Josh Sitton, who had ankle issues last year, was on the side at practice with Bears players who are rehabbing from surgeries.


May 30 2017 - Kyle Long
  G Kyle Long worked on the side with rehabbing players Tuesday as he tries to come back from a severe ankle injury and surgery. The Bears might be considering moving Long to the left side this year after he played right guard last year. Josh Sitton would move to right guard from left. It's possible the injury has something to do with Long's weight loss. He lost weight to take pressure off his ankle following surgery.


May 30 2017 - Connor Shaw
  QB Connor Shaw was waived by the Bears to make room for WR Victo Cruz on the 90-man roster. Shaw joined the Bears in July last year on waivers after being cut by the Browns. He completed 11 of 16 passes for 127 yards with two touchdowns, no interceptions in preseason but suffered a season-ending broken leg in the third preseason game. The move left the Bears with Mike Glennon, Mitchell Trubisky and Mark Sanchez on the roster at quarterback.


May 25 2017 - Victor Cruz
  WR Victor Cruz has agreed to a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears, ESPN reported Thursday. Cruz, 30, spent his previous six seasons with the New York Giants, and he had big seasons in 2011, 2012 and 2013, catching 241 passes for 3,626 yards and 23 touchdowns in 46 games in those three seasons. But his production has decreased in recent seasons, largely because of injuries. He had 39 catches for 586 yards and one touchdown in 2016, when he appeared in 15 games, including 12 starts.


May 16 2017 - Mitchell Trubisky
  QB Mitchell Trubisky, the No. 2 overall pick in last month's draft, had a "great camp" during the just-completed three-day rookie practices, coach John Fox said. Trubisky will now focus on other offseason goals, including getting ready for organized team activities for veterans and rookies later this month and the mandatory minicamp in the middle of June. "You've got to get him up to speed in your offense," Fox told the Chicago Sun-Times of Trubisky's offseason goals. "So I think a guy, regardless of position, has to get comfortable and know what to do -- and how to do it -- and then just really cut loose and play.


May 12 2017 - Denard Robinson
  RB Denard Robinson was among several veteran free agents brought in for rookie camp for a look. The former Michigan standout made 263 rushes for 1,058 yards and had 47 catches for 310 yards in four seasons with Jacksonville.


May 12 2017 - Eddie Jackson
  S Eddie Jackson of Alabama, the Bears' fourth-round pick, wasn't ready to participate in full because he's still rehabbing from a broken leg. "I think he's feeling better," coach John Fox said. "He's still in part of his rehab as far as timeline. We did some things with him but we're going to make sure he's healed and ready before we put him out there."


Apr 30 2017 - Kyle Fuller
  CB Kyle Fuller will not get his fifth-year option picked up by the Bears. This will allow Fuller, 25, to become a free agent in 2018. Fuller, who was selected 14th overall in the 2014 draft, started his first two seasons but sat out last year after after undergoing a knee scope during the summer. He made an impressive start to his career with three interceptions and two forced fumbles in his first three games of his rookie season, before making just three picks and one forced fumble in the next 29 games.


Apr 15 2017 - Sam Acho
  LB Sam Acho was re-signed to a one-year contract. Acho recorded 40 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in 16 games last season with Chicago. The 28-year-old played 46 percent of the Bears' defensive snaps, trailing only Willie Young and Leonard Floyd among outside linebackers on the team. Acho also notched three tackles on special teams.


Mar 27 2017 - Deiondre Hall
  CB Deiondre' Hall was arrested over the weekend following an incident involving Green Bay Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant at a bar in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Police said Hall did not respond to the officers' instructions and spit in their faces, according to the affidavit. He and Dorleant were teammates at Northern Iowa.


Mar 24 2017 - Mark Sanchez
  QB Mark Sanchez signed a one-year deal with the Bears and is expected to back up new starter Mike Glennon.

  S Chris Prosinski was re-signed by the Chicago Bears to a one-year contract on Monday.Terms of the deal were not disclosed by the team for Prosinski, who recorded 15 tackles in 16 games last season. The 29-year-old also collected seven special teams tackles for Chicago.


Mar 17 2017 - John Jenkins
  DTJohn Jenkins was signed by the Bears to a one-year deal. The 6-3, 359-pound Jenkins has been a run-stopper through his first four NFL seasons. He has 118 career tackles and 1.5 sacks. Jenkins spent his first 3 1/2 seasons with the Saints until he was released after seven games last season. He joined the Seahawks and played in two games before becoming a free agent.


Mar 14 2017 - Connor Barth
  K Connor Barth will return next season with a one-year contract, the Chicago Bears announced. The deal will pay Barth $980,000 and $155,000 in guaranteed money, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The contract will become official when it is signed after league's new year officially begins at 4 p.m. ET. Demps recorded a career-high six interceptions and had one forced fumble in 13 games last season with Houston.


Mar 10 2017 - Mike Glennon
  QB Mike Glennon, formerly the Bucs' backup, agreed to a three-year, $43.5 million free agent deal with the Bears. According to reports, Glennon drew interest from multiple teams, but the Bears were "by far" the highest bidder. The 27-year-old started 13 games in 2013 as a rookie out of North Carolina State and had 19 touchdowns, nine interceptions that season. In four seasons with the Buccaneers, Glennon started 18 games.


Mar 2 2017 - Mike Glennon
  QB Mike Glennon has received an offer from the Bucs to become the highest-paid backup quarterback in the NFL. However, Glennon is expected to opt for free agency and will likely receive an opportunity to at least compete as a starter. Glennon is said to be closely evaluating thesituation and leery of signing with a team with an unstable coaching situation that could doom his chances.


Feb 20 2017 - Victor Cruz
  WR Victor Cruz, released by the New York Giants last week as a salary-cap casualty, made a visit with the Carolina Panthers over the weekend.

Jan 2 2017 - Marquess Wilson
