Bears sign third QB Tyler Bray

New, comments

The former Kansas City Chiefs QB has been with Nagy since entering the league in 2013 undrafted

The Bears decided to kick off the weekend by signing a third quarterback, another former Chief with ties to new head coach Matt Nagy.

They have agreed to terms with Tyler Bray who played his college ball at the University of Tennessee.

Pete Schrager of the NFLN broke the news:

Bray was undrafted in 2013 and has appeared in just one game last season, briefly spelling Patrick Mahomes and he missed on his only passing attempt and rushing for no gain.

He had a decent career for the Volunteers, throwing for 7,444 yards, 69 touchdowns (nice) and 28 interceptions. He started all 12 games in only his senior year, as the Vols went 5-7.

This adds a third QB to the mix, behind Mitch Trubisky and former Chiefs and Saints back up Chase Daniel. That should give Trubisky two voices in the QB room that are familiar with Nagy’s offense.

It also indicates that Mark Sanchez will not be back, but that probably isn’t the biggest shock given that he spent all last season as a third QB.
