EDIT: There are reports the Bears made some changes after the weekend’s minicamp, so click here for the updated UDFA list.

The Chicago Bears have announced their 2022 class of undrafted free agents, and there are several prospects that have a decent shot at sticking around in some capacity for the upcoming season. The announced group of 16 players is smaller than the reports that were floating around earlier this week, so I wonder if those other players were just rookie minicamp invites or elected to go to a different team.

Here are Chicago’s official new UDFA rookies.

  1. Jean Delance, OL, Florida (6’4”, 303)
  2. Landon Lenoir, WR, Southern Illinois (5’11”, 186)
  3. Savon Scarver, WR, Utah State (5’10”, 184)
  4. Kevin Shaa, WR, Liberty (5’9”, 166)
  5. Cyrus Holder, WR, Duquesne (6’2”, 198)
  6. Henry Litwin, WR, Slippery Rock (5’10”, 198)
  7. Master Teague, RB, Ohio State (5’11”, 225)
  8. Chase Allen, TE, Iowa State (6’6”, 251)
  9. Jake Tonges, TE, Cal (6’4”, 240)
  10. Micah Dew-Treadway, DL, Minnesota (6’4”, 308)
  11. Jack Sanborn, ILB, Wisconsin (6’2”, 234)
  12. C.J. Avery, LB, Louisville (5’11”, 230)
  13. Jaylen Alexander, LB, Purdue (6’, 236)
  14. Jaylon Jones, CB, Mississippi (5’10”, 190)
  15. Allie Green, CB, Missouri (6’2”, 203)
  16. Amari Carter, S, University of Miami (5’11”, 200)

The Bears also announced that they released offensive lineman Tyrone Wheatley Jr., who spent time a year ago on their practice squad.

Chicago’s full 11-man draft class will all be at camp, and even though some are unsigned the NFL has a rule that protects them from injury.

There are also 4 first-year players at this weekend’s camp.

Ryan Willis, quarterback

Two unsigned veterans are there to try out.
