Chicago Bears waive David Fales, announce 4 changes to their practice squad

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears announced the following moves to their team today.

They waived quarterback David Fales from the 53 man roster.

Bears also announce that defensive lineman Brandon Dunn has terminated his practice squad contract because he was signed to the Houston Texans 53 man roster. Chicago also terminated the practice squad contract of center Ryan Seymour.

To fill the two spots on the practice squad, the Bears signed wide receiver Nathan Palmer (5'11", 198) and defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith (6'2", 300).

Palmer played in five games for the Indianapolis Colts in 2012 on offense and special teams, he had one catch for -4 yards and he recovered a fumble on special teams. Palmer was originally an UDFA out of Northern Illinois by the San Francisco 49ers and he was on their practice squad. He was also on the practice squads of Miami (2013), Denver (2013-14) and New England (2015).

Smith played in 10 games over two years with Jacksonville (2012) and Seattle (2013), totaling 15 tackles, 1 TFL and 1 QBH. Smith was a 3rd round pick of the Jags in 2010 out of Louisiana Tech.

The Bears currently have one spot remaining on their 53 man roster, once they fill it it, we'll pass along the news...
