Being a seventh round draft pick, you can't feel comfortable about making the active roster, throw in that you are a offensive tackle and won't be contributing to special teams, add a little injury and you have your the first Bears 2007 draft pick to be waived.
The Bears have let offensive tackle Aaron Brant go.
In his place they have signed Steven Vieira.
Vieira spent the 2007 NFL Europa season with the Berlin Thunder. The UCLA product was originally signed by the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted rookie free agent on April 29, 2005. He finished his rookie campaign in 2005 on the Bengals practice squad for the final eight games of the season after spending the first half of the season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List.
