Chicago Bears sign defensive end Trevor Scott

The Chicago Bears have signed veteran defensive end Trevor Scott in a move that absolutely no one was anticipating.

Mike Ehrmann

Larry Mayer informs the world:

Trevor Scott was drafted in the 6th round by Al Davis and the Raiders in 2008. He suffered an ACL injury in 2010, and has 2 starts in the last three years. He played his college ball at the University of Buffalo.

In 2013, Scott appeared in just four games for the Buccanneers, notching two tackles.  Our Bucs blogger, Bucs Nation, gave WCG this feedback:

"Scott looked great in preseason last year, then went on to do absolutely nothing during the regular season. It's kind of a mystery, but he was completely useless. And that was with almost no legitimate competition to beat him out for playing time, too. No injuries that I know of, he just played some horrible football. So...yeah, I'd have a hard time seeing him make the 53-man roster."

For the Patriots in 2012, he appeared in 14 games, logging the aforementioned two starts.  That season he notched 3 sacks & 1 forced fumble.

In 2011, he won the Ed Block courage award, given to players who are voted by their teammates as model of sportsmanship, courage and inspiration.

Listed at 6'5, 256, Scott likely projects to be a depth project. Following the recent trend, it's yet another one year deal, and looks like it could be Scott's last chance.

Details on the contract have yet to be released, but there's little reason to believe it's much more than minimum value.
