Bears Promoting OLB Isaiah Irving To Active Roster

The Chicago Bears announced that they’ve promoted OLB Isaiah Irving to their active roster ahead of their Monday night matchup with the Vikings.

This comes a few days after they lost OLB Willie Young for the season, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

Irving, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of San Jose State back in May. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Bears cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed him to their practice squad.

During his college career at San Jose State, Irving recorded 139 tackles, 22.5 tackles for a loss, 11 sacks and a forced fumble over the course of 41 games.
