On Tuesday, the Chicago Bears did some roster reshuffling as they resigned tight end Kyle Adams after releasing him on Monday. When the Bears brought back Adams, they had to release veteran tackle Jonathan Scott to free up a roster spot.
Kyle Adams is a three year pro out of Purdue and has played in 23 games for the Bears in his first two seasons. Last season with Chicago, he started in two games and in total had four receptions for 40 yards. It seems like Adams should get more playing time but just in case he doesn’t do so well, the Bears traded for veteran tight end Dante Rosario.
Not forgetting about Jonathan Scott he has played for the Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills, and Pittsburgh Steelers in his seven year career so far. Last season with the Bears, he appeared in 12 games and started in seven of those. Finally, Scott loses out on some money that he could have had since he is a vested veteran, he would have gotten a full salary of $715,000 if he was on the week one roster.
