Bears Sign RB Lorenzo Booker

Barely 24 hours after signing one running back to a pretty-good-sounding four year deal, the Bears signed another running back to a late-veteran-pickup-style one-year deal, as the team came to terms with Lorenzo Booker.

Booker is a now-sixth-year player originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins but who's been spending the last two seasons in Minnesota backing up Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart, as well as returning kickoffs.

Booker's joins a pretty cramped backfield - behind Forte and Michael Bush sit Kahlil Bell, Armando Allen and Harvey Unga - but it looks like he'll be either a camp body or competition for Bell's third running back spot.

To make room on the 90-man roster, Alvester Alexander was released. Alexander was an undrafted free agent from the University of Wyoming.
