Chicago Bears sign wide receiver Titus Davis

NFL: San Diego Chargers-OTA Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier today, the Chicago Bears concluded their 2017 rookie minicamp, so you just knew there’d be a roster move at some point.

The Bears decided to add veteran wide out, and local product, Titus Davis, who worked out with the team on a try out basis over the weekend. Davis played his high school ball at Wheaton-Warrenville South, in Wheaton, Illinois. He’s the older brother of Corey Davis, who went 5th overall to the Tennessee Titans.

After playing at Central Michigan, Titus Davis was a priority undrafted free agent of the San Diego Chargers in 2015. He didn’t make the team and was signed to Jets’ practice squad. The Jets cut him, but he found a job on the Bills’ practice squad, before being cut again, and finding his way back to the Jets practice squad.

He was with the Jets on a reserve/futures deal, but decided to retire in August of 2016. The 24 year old decided to give football another try and he’ll now be in the mix with the Bears this offseason.

To make room for Davis, the Bears waived wide out Levonte “Kermit” Whitfield, who was a rookie UDFA from Florida State.
