In a surprising turn of events, the Chicago Bears have signed 30-year old tight end Bradley Sowell after he made it through the NFL’s waiver wire unclaimed.

(Insert eye-roll GIF here)

The tight end position for the Bears seems to be in some disarray after Adam Shaheen was a healthy scratch on Sunday and starter Trey Burton suffered a calf injury during the game.

Could we actually see Sowell stick around the roster for Sunday night’s game against the Los Angeles Rams? If you remember correctly, it was against the Rams in 2018 where Sowell caught the Santa’s Sleigh TD before performing his famous touchdown dance.

To make room on their 53-man roster the Bears have released outside linebacker James Vaughters.

EDIT: On Tuesday the Bears signed offensive lineman Dino Boyd to their practice squad.

In other waiver wire news, the Carolina Panthers have been awarded ex-Bears running back Mike Davis.
