The Bears have made their first significant offseason addition in the form of former CFL cornerback Tre Roberson, according to Adam Schefter:

With the added report that he’s receiving the largest compensation since Cameron Wake, I might wager this isn’t just another Andy Fantuz situation, either. Roberson has been in high demand.

According to his CFL page, he had 41 tackles and seven interceptions last year for the Calgary Stampeders. Two of those picks were returned for touchdowns. He three INTs and two forced fumbles in 2018 for Calgary as well.

Roberson played collegiately at Indiana and Illinois State, as a quarterback. He was Indiana Mr. Football 2011, according to his ISU Redbird (Shoutout Kev) page.

He did have a stop in the NFL in 2017, spending the year rotating on and off the Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad.

Could this spell the end for Prince Amukamara or is it just some added competition for more additions to come?
