Bears sign Dan Skuta

Linebacker Dan Skuta has found a new home.

Skuta was released by the Jaguars in April after two years in Jacksonville and visited with the Patriots later in the month, but didn’t land a contract in New England. He had more luck in Chicago.

The Bears announced on Monday that they have signed Skuta to their 90-man roster. The move reunites Skuta with defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who ran the 49ers defense when Skuta played for the team in 2013 and 2014.

Skuta made 18 starts in those two years and recorded five sacks and three forced fumbles for the Niners during the 2014 season. He didn’t have the same kind of production with the Jaguars and may need to rediscover it to land a roster spot with Leonard Floyd, Pernell McPhee, Lamarr Houston, Willie Young and Sam Acho already on hand.

    Is Skuta an ILB or an OLB? If OLB then yeah, Houston may be on the outs. A signing of the former regime who has not returned adequate production for his pay.

    If ILB, it could mean something worse, i.e., Danny Trevathan’s knee recovery is behind schedule.

    Did they give up two 3rd rounders and a 4th to get him?

    The only Bear I can root for but only because he was my teammate at Grand Valley State.

    Sad… my condolences. At least when you leave a bad team you sometimes go to a better one… not in this case. This might not even be a lateral move and that is hard to do when you leave the Jags!
