The Chicago Bears have announced they have signed former Green Bay Packers strong safety Kentrell Brice to a reserve/future contract.

Brice was originally an undrafted free agent by the Packers in 2016 after playing his college ball at Louisiana Tech. He played with them for three years, but they didn’t tender him an offer following his 2018 season. That final year with the Packers saw him start 10 of the 14 games he played in while making 50 tackles. He has one career interception and that came in 2017 against the Bears in Mike Glennon’s last start in Chicago.

The 5’11”, 200 pounder was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019, but he didn’t make their 53 man roster and spent last year out of football.

Brice’s best chance to stick on the Bears for 2020 would like be as a special teamer. He played in 12.5% of Green Bay’s special team snaps in 2018, 20.5% in 2017, and 67% in 2016.

In case you missed it, Brice is the Bears 11th player signed to a reserve/future contract.
