There were several young players who made an impression at the Bears rookie minicamp over the weekend and now they have a spot on the 90-man roster.

Chicago announced on Monday that the club had signed six tryout players to the active roster: linebacker Christian Albright, safety Jon Alexander, long snapper Antonio Ortiz, defensive end Carson Taylor, safety A.J. Thomas, and running back De’Montre Tuggle.

As one corresponding move, the team waived outside linebacker Ledarius MackKhalil Mack’s younger brother. The club also waived running back Master Teague, receivers Landon Lenoir and Savon Scarver, linebacker Jaylan Alexander, and safety Amari Carter. Those five players had been signed as undrafted free agents last week.

The Bears had 69 total players at their rookie minicamp, including their 11 draftees.

  1. How bad must it suck for Ledarius Mack, to not only have your older brother be Khalil, but to also be so bad you can’t even hang on with the Bears.

  2. The Bears roster was so poor last season that they could have signed the entire Vassar freshman class and improved.

  3. Lederius will probably be brought back as a practice squad member. Surprised to see Teague cut though.

  4. Isn’t it kind of weird to sign five UDFAs and then cut them a week later in favor of guys who had to go through the tryout camp?
