Bears sign Cyril Grayson to the practice squad

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears have announced that they’ve added wide receiver Cyril Grayson to their practice squad. He was most recently a member of the Houston Texans’ practice squad.

Grayson didn’t play football at LSU, where he was a member of the track team, but he impressed enough at their 2017 pro day that he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Seattle Seahawks. Prior to his 2017 practice time with Seattle, his last organized football activity came in 2011, but the 4.3 forty speed from the four time NCAA track champion got him noticed.

The 5’9”, 180 pound Grayson played defensive back in high school, but he’s been a wide out during both stints in the NFL.

He joins Tanner Gentry to give Chicago two receivers on their practice squad.

Grayson tried to play football a couple times while in college, but NCAA rules stopped him the first time, and no available football scholarships stopped him the second. “It was always a dream to get to the NFL,” Grayson told the Seattle Times, and now he’ll have a third opportunity to make it with the Bears to make his dreams come true.
