The Bears have officially signed linebackers Terrell Manning and DeDe Lattimore to their active roster in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Falcons.
- Chicago waived C Talyor Boggs and DB Shamiel Gary to make room for the two linebackers.
Lattimore, 23, signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of South Florida back in May. He’s been on and off of the team’s practice squad a few times since the start of the season, but he could be active for the Week 6 match up against the Falcons now that LB Lance Briggs (ribs) and LB Shea McClellin (hand) have been ruled out.
Manning, 24, has recently spent short stints with the Dolphins and Giants, but he was cut loose a few weeks ago by Miami. The Packers actually drafted him in the fifth round of the 2012 draft, although he lasted just one year with the team.
The Bears added him to their active roster for their Week 3 match up against the Bears, however, he committed a pretty bad penalty on special teams and was waived a few days later.
Last year, Manning appeared in just one game for the Chargers and didn’t record any stats. In total, Manning has appeared in six total games since entering the NFL.
