With the NFL draft in the Chicago Bears’ rear-view mirror, Ryan Poles turned his head to free agency. The Poles added depth to the narrow end room by demanding that former Giant John Risen be excused from concessions.
Before fans could talk about how many TEs the bears were keeping, they gave up on Jesper Horsted because of a Failed physical appointment. The Bears also waived Ryan Willis to make way for Nathan Peterman who signed earlier today.
Horsted Bears Journey
Horsted’s career with the Bears family looked promising this year, but has now come to a stark halt. Horsted signed with the Bears family without the drafting of Princeton. He had limited playing time in 2019 and no time to play in 2020. But in 2021, Matt Nagy’s “lame duck” season, Horsted had hit twice for 21 yards. Both receptions were meant for touchdowns, including the Minnesota Vikings game when the clock ticked on Monday Night Football. With Jimmy Graham now gone, Horsted was ready to take the leap and be in a pivotal position with Cole Kumit in the red this year.
Raison John’s career
Rysen John comes to the Bears with a different story than most. John hails from north of the border in Canada. He attended Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia. When he became a professional, he had a choice. He was drafted into the third round of the 2020 CFL Draft. John decided he’d rather pursue a challenging professional career in the NFL by being an unregistered signer for the New York Giants instead. He has spent the past two years as part of the Giants, but has yet to make his NFL debut. After being waived with a hamstring injury in September 2020, John was able to join the Giants coaching staff the following month. In August 2021, John was placed in the injured reserve and has been there ever since. The Giants officially ceded Jon on Tuesday.
Rysen John is a great gambler for bears as a piece of depth. He is 6 feet 7 and weighs 237 lbs. The skill set that he has that most tight ends don’t have is speed. In the 2020 NFL Combine, he ran a 4.60 40-yard dash. Hopefully he can stay healthy and the Bears training team can shape him into a tight end every day to pair with Cole Kmet.
