The Bears could have drafted Illinois native Corey Davis at the top of the first round this year, but they opted for quarterback Mitch Trubisky and the wideout wound up going to the Titans with the fifth overall pick.

There will be a wide receiver with the last name of Davis who went to college in Michigan after growing up in Illinois on the Bears roster, however. It is Titus Davis, who is Corey’s older brother and who signed with the Bears after a tryout at rookie camp.

The elder Davis went to Central Michigan rather than Western Michigan and left the school, which also claims Antonio Brown as an alum, as the all-time leader in receiving yards and touchdown catches. He has spent time with the Chargers, Jets and Bills since entering the pro ranks in 2015, but has never played in a regular season game.

Wide receiver Levonte Whitfield was waived in a corresponding move.

  1. This signing fixes all of the Bears woes at WR because you can never have enough relatives of first round draft picks on your roster.

  2. The Bears are trying hard to make up for just having the worst draft of any team. It’s so bad, some spineless Bears fans continue to be traitors and help support my Packers here on PFT.

  3. Wisconsin’s Favorite Son Jeffrey Be Dahmed says:


    The only thing more pathetic than a bitter, jealous Viking fan is a bitter, jealous Viking fan pretending to be a Packer fan.

  4. More garbage for Chicago Bears Dumpster fire…….but then again could be easily more productive than Kevin White.

  5. This guy is nowhere near the physical specimen his brother is so Bears fans should set expectations accordingly. Average size, below average speed, small hands, short arms and has already quit on one NFL team. The one thing he does really really well is run routes so it could be he’s being brought into camp to sharpen our DBs coverage skills cause they certainly need improvement.

  6. The Bears have better receivers than most realize. Cameron Meredith is a legitimate #1 receiver. He was better than Alshon last season. Kevin White has the potential to be a solid #2 receiver but they don’t even need him. Markus Wheaton is underrated and was underused in Pittsburgh. He was 4th on the number of looks he had for his best seasons. He is fast and has good athleticism. Wright had his best year when Loggains was the OC in Tennessee. UDFA’s Gentry and Seales are solid possibilities to make the team. Go young, fast and athletic.
