Bears sign Herman Johnson


From Larry Mayer: "Johnson was selected by the Cardinals in the fifth round of last year’s draft out of LSU. He spent the entire season on Arizona’s 53-man roster, but was inactive for all 16 games. The 6-7, 360-pounder was on the Cardinals’ practice squad for the first 13 weeks this season. Nicknamed "The House," Johnson weighed 15 pounds and 14 ounces at birth, making him the largest baby ever born in the state of Louisiana." Barry Turner was relased to make room for this move.
