There have also been several Bears that were here a year ago that re-signed, and a number of players added on reserve-future contracts, so for the full list of 2020 transactions you can click here.

The Bears’ current offseason roster now stands at the maximum of 90 players, but these things tend to be fluid as they progress through the summer, so if anything changes we’ll be all over it at WCG.
