On Monday, the Washington Commanders signed defensive end Jalen Harris off the Chicago Bears practice squad. Harris, the son of former Bear Sean Harris, was an undrafted free agent pickup by Chicago out of the University of Arizona, and he's been on Chicago's practice squad all season.

Washington had a need at the position when placing defensive end Efe Obada on injured reserve earlier today.

Harris (6'4", 257) had five tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble during the preseason for the Bears, and now he'll get a chance to play with the 4-7 Commanders and head coach Ron Rivera, who was the Bears' Defensive Quality Control coach for two of the years that Sean Harris played in Chicago.
