The Bears have plenty of work to do this offseason, so they might as well start early.

Per the league’s transaction wire, the Bears have signed former Packers tight end Justin┬áPerillo.

He spent parts of the past three seasons with the Packers, including stints on the practice squad. The Bears signed him to their practice squad last November after the Packers released him.

The former undrafted rookie from Maine has 15 career receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown.

    The other NFC North division teams should pay the Green Bay Packers royalties for all the Packer castoffs they later scoop up. I’m talking to you Bears, Lions and Vikings!

    He’s going to a team with 9 World Championships. I can respect that.

    Not real elusive, not much YAC but good blocker, hard worker & GREAT HANDS. Rodgers loved throwing to him. Bears fans will like this kid.

    He’s not going to “wow” anybody but he’s solid and dependable.

    From a team with 13 NFL championships and 4 Super Bowl rings to a team with 9 NFL championships and a Super Bowl ring. Minnesota and Detroit…..crickets? From a Packers fan respect to the Bears. Vikings and Lions little bro’s in the NFC North household.

    Over 30 free agent TE available, and this is who they pick? As a Bears fan, this isn’t someone to even get excited about. Seems like a practice squad pickup all the way.
