Bears Sign CB De’Vante Bausby, Add WR Dres Anderson To Practice Squad

The Chicago Bears announced Tuesday that they’ve signed CB De’Vante Bausby to a contract and added WR Dres Anderson to their practice squad.

  • The Bears also released WR Darius Jennings from their practice squad.

Bausby, 23, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh State back in May of last year. He lasted just over a month in Kansas City before he waived and later signed to the Bears’ practice squad.

Chicago elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract but he was once again added to their practice squad after being among their final roster cuts. The Bears promoted him to their active roster last month.

In 2016, Bausby has appeared in three games and recorded 12 tackles and no interceptions.

Anderson, 24, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Utah back in May of last year. He was in the second year of his three-year, $1.581 million contract and set to make a base salary of $525,000 for the 2016 season when he was waived at the start of the regular season.

The 49ers re-signed Anderson to their practice squad before cutting him loose a month ago.

Anderson has yet to appear in an NFL game.
