Bears sign Trevor Scott

There are a handful of NFL veterans free to sign with any team right now because they were cut by their previous employers.

Most of those players have been cut in the last few weeks as teams prepare for free agency, but some were cut way back in the regular season. Defensive end Trevor Scott was a member of the latter group before signing with the Bears on Thursday.

Scott played four games for the Buccaneers last season before his release. He’s also played for the Patriots and Raiders and has 16.5 sacks over the course of his career.

The Bears re-signed Jeremiah Ratliff this week, but still have Nate Collins, Henry Melton and Corey Wootton heading toward free agency. Scott’s chances of being more than an offseason depth signing likely rest on how the team sorts things out once March 11 rolls around.

    The Bears are cheaters, you’re not allowed to sign any players before Free Agency starts.

    He was cut by TB and the Bears think he can help them?

    Should the Bears need someone to recite Shakespearean sonnets, he’s got the right name for the assignment…

    At least the Bears make moves…any moves. The Packers sit back and cross their fingers with hopes that their existing roster will somehow simply just play better the following season.

    And yet the Packers consistently finish AHEAD of the Bears, even after losing a League MVP for a good chunk of the season.

    Don’t confuse “activity” with “accomplishment”

    Bears, Vikings and Lions all are GARBAGE. Always will be Packers on top!

    Good pass rusher for the Raiders. He couldn’t play the run, or play in coverage, though. Pretty limited skill set.

    You guys overanalyze too many players who probably won’t even make the team. They aren’t limited to 53 at this point.

    Nothing to see here…..move along.

    It’s a step in the right direction. We have a lot of holes to fill on Defense.

    Bears will win their division this year so cry packer fans, you all barely beat a bears team that was worst defensively in franchise history. That’s not a great accomplishment let’s see what happens with s healthy D!!!! Packers suck!!!

    The way the Patriots need a pass rush and they let him go. Doesn’t sound promising.

    At least we didn’t give up a second round pick for this Tampa Bay defensive end castaway !
