It looks like Charles Grant’s NFL career isn’t over quite yet.
In a surprise move on Tuesday, the Bears announced they cut Mark Anderson and signed Grant to an undisclosed contract.
Anderson was splitting time at left end with Israel Idonije and had a decent amount of pressures in the first few games of the season. But the Bears never liked his rush defense and Anderson’s production fell off dramatically after recording 12 sacks as a rookie in 2006.
This move continues the trend towards accountability on Lovie Smith’s defense, which is a good thing. But Grant couldn’t even stick with the Dolphins this year and the signing sends a clear message about another transaction Chicago made in the summer.
The Bears regret cutting Alex Brown.
