Chicago Bears to sign OL A.J. Lindeman

New, comments

The Bears continue to try something, heck, anything to work on the offensive line, this time going with a lesser-known player out of Toledo.

This is literally the only picture I could find of AJ Lindeman in our system.

Who?

From his own twitter, the Bears are going to sign yet another offensive lineman to work for a spot:

A.J. Lindeman is a hometown boy, hailing from Aurora and playing for Waubonsie Valley in high school. Playing for the Toledo Rockets, he clocks in at around 6'6, 300 lbs, and started his final season at right tackle.

EDIT: If you were wondering which strapping young man was released to make room for Lindeman, then wonder no more.

Team at max 90.</p>&mdash; Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) <a href="https://twitter.com/BradBiggs/status/345272937894514688">June 13, 2013</a></blockquote>

Clearly undrafted, I'll be perfectly honest, a cursory web search reveals very little about Lindeman. He participated in this week's minicamp on a tryout basis, and they must have seen enough to make them think he could at least be a solid practice squad player or some such in the future.

As we can drag up some more details about Lindeman, we'll definitely bring them to you. For now, you can watch this video of his pro day in March, and that might shed some light for you on the player he is.
