CHICAGO – The Bears already made a couple of roster moves Wednesday after signing quarterback Nathan Peterman and subsequently waiving Ryan Willis. As it turns out, that wouldn’t represent the only exchange of the day.
The team later announced its decision to waive tight end Jesper Horsted after a failed physical designation. As a result, the Bears signed Rysen John off waivers to fill the void.
John has been with the New York Giants for the last two seasons, but has yet to play a snap on offense. He was waived by the Giants on Tuesday after spending the 2021 season on IR.
The 6-foot-7 Canadian will try and carve out a role in Chicago and he certainly has a chance to do so. The Bears’ current tight end room is led by Cole Kmet, but there’s not much depth behind him.
Chicago’s roster continues to sit at 90 players after the moves.
