A familiar face has found his way back to the windy city. WR Rashied Davis
, who signed with NFC North rival Detroit last off-season has reportedly signed with the Chicago Bears today.
Chicago Tribune reporter Vaughn McClure first reported the move Monday afternoon
He was let go last off-season after the Bears opted to sign WR Sam Hurd. That turned out to be a big mistake after what happened to Hurd last season.
Davis was always a likable player for the Bears. He helped on special teams in any way he could as a blocker as well as a returner. He was always a dependable receiver as well, making big catches when the team needed him most.
In six seasons in Chicago, the 33-year old appeared in 92 games making 15 starts. He reeled in 88 balls for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns.
He will battle second-year receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, who has yet to prove his worth on special teams for what looks to be the sixth receiver spot.
Glad to see a familiar face back in Chicago. He should be one of the better sixth receivers in the league if he is able to secure a roster spot.
Welcome back Rashied Davis.

Wide receiver Rashied Davis, a four-phase special teams player, signed with the Chicago Bears Monday, a day after Devin Thomas abruptly announced his retirement. He agreed to a one-year deal. “Somebody walked off the field and he didn’t want his job,” Davis said, referencing Thomas. “I guess I wanted it. “I’m getting an opportunity to play football. That’s all I [...]
Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Thomas has retired.

Thursday night at Soldier Field, the Bears will be taking the field against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Although most starters on both sides of the ball will be seeing limited playing time, it gives the backups an opportunity to move up the depth chart and offers rookies and others the opportunity to stick around for another week of evaluations.

The Denver Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning will be relieved—or, in Manning’s case, disappointed—to know that Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has been ruled out for the team’s preseason opener Thursday evening in Chicago. Urlacher has missed six consecutive training camp practices.
