A Bears Den will perhaps be up later today, but I wanted to get a current list of the players that the Bears have picked up since the draft ended.
Eric Peterman, WR, Northwestern
Peterman had a terrific pro day back in March and ran himself into an opportunity with a 40-yard dash time under 4.5 seconds. He'll look to punch his ticket by proving he can make a difference on special teams.
Mike Rivera, LB, Kansas
Rivera didn't perform as well during his senior year at Kansas as he did in previous seasons but he had a good showing at his pro day when Bears scout Teddy Monago was in attendance. At 6-2, 245 pounds, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.63 seconds and his 38 1/2 inch vertical jump was eye opening. Rivera had interest from other teams but chose the Bears for the opportunity. Perhaps he could get in the mix on the strong side if he really excels.
Will Taufoou, FB, Cal
The Bears landed one of the better fullbacks that was in this draft. Taufoou had interest from more than half of the teams in the league, including some with money offers, but chose the Bears because he liked the opportunity on the roster.
Dahna Deleston, SS, UConn
Dennis Conley, G, Hampton
Johan Asiata, G, UNLV
Kevin Malast, LB, Rutgers
Tyrell Fenroy, RB, Louisiana-Lafayette
Chase Patton, QB, Missouri
