Adam Caplan reports that the Chicago Bears worked out free agent defensive end Cheta Ozougwu on Thursday.

Ozougwu was the final pick in the 2011 NFL draft, a.k.a. last year’s Mr. Irrelevant. Despite a fairly productive career at Rice, Ozougwu failed to land a practice squad spot with the Texans after being waived at final cuts.

Ozougwu was drafted by Houston to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. He would be a defensive end in the Bears’ 4-3.

  1. The term “Mr. Irrelevant” is beyond stupid. Wes Welker and Antonio Gates were UDFAs and available when each year’s Mr. Irrelevant was selected. I’d say they ended up being pretty damn relevant, wouldn’t you?

  2. It looks like tonights articles are brought to you by this site’s Mr. Irrelevant(s).

  3. Mr irrelevant started back when there was like 12 rounds in the draft. Actually besides being called mr irrelevant its not to bad. He gets a bunch of free stuff nd a vacation for mr irrelevant week if they still do that.

  4. Calling the last pick in the draft “Mr. Irrelevant” is about as funny as the restaurant TGI Friday’s. It’s kinda funny, but it doesn’t make sense because almost everyone who eats there has to go to work the next day because Wal-Mart is open on the weekends.
