As reported by Zach Zaidman, the Chicago Bears have re-signed offensive tackle Jonathan Scott. The corresponding roster move was to cut tight end Kyle Adams. As you may recall, Adams was cut last Monday too, only to be signed back on Tuesday.
The Bears also made a couple practice squad moves. They signed quarterback Jerrod Johnson to the PS, and terminated the contract of guard Derek Dennis.
With Scott's release and reacquisition, his salary is no longer guaranteed for the entire 2013 season. As a vested veteran, had Scott been on the opening day roster he would have been owed his full salary, even if he were released this season.
Adams was brought back partly because the man he was cut for, tight end Dante Rosario, wasn't up to speed on his new playbook.
Johnson has never appeared in an NFL game, although he's spent time on three other NFL rosters. This is Johnson's second stint on the Bears practice squad this year. Arm strength was an issue for him in college, and he was converted to wide receiver towards the end of his senior year. He has honed his quarterbacking craft in the UFL, and his athleticism may provide the Bears a read option/mobile scout team QB to practice against.
