Upon completion of rookie minicamp, the Chicago Bears decided to add three undrafted rookie players that were there trying out. With the roster full, we should expect the Bears to release three players, possibly as early as Monday morning. The 3 Impressing Bears' brass were;

DL - Kenton Adeyemi (6'4", 291) Connecticut
WR - Kieren Duncan (5'11", 170) Colorado State Peublo
P - Ben LeCompte (5'10", 200) North Dakota State

Adeyemi ran a 4.92 forty at his pro day, with 29 reps on the bench. The big fella had a 31' vertical as well. He started 23 games the last two years, picking up 28 tackles and 2 sacks in 2015.

Duncan can flat out fly with a 4.37 forty at his pro day, but he had a 4.25 (or 4.29 depending on the source) hand timed 40 that day as well. He was the Thunder Wolves' primary kick and punt returner last year as well as their leader in both receptions (36) and receiving yards (622).

Since the Bears only had one punter on the roster, it made sense to get another camp body in at some point. LeCompte punted 62 times last season for a 45.9 average. He was NDSU's punter for four straight years averaging 57 punts per season with a 44.6 average yards per punt for his career.
