The Bears signed guard Tommy Doles last week after he tried out for the team at their rookie minicamp, but his stay with the team turned out to be a brief one.

Doles was waived on Monday to make room for another player who attended the minicamp on a tryout basis. The Bears announced that they have signed Jesper Horsted to their 90-man roster.

Horsted is listed as a tight end, but played wide receiver at Princeton. He was also on the baseball team during his time at the Ivy League school.

Horsted was very productive as a receiver over his final two college seasons. He caught 164 passes for 2,273 yards and 27 touchdowns.
