Bears Sign LB Josh Shirley To Practice Squad

The Chicago Bears are signing LB Josh Shirley to their practice squad on Wednesday, according to Brad Biggs.

The Bears’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. TE Rory Anderson (injured)
  2. RB David Cobb
  3. DB Jacoby Glenn
  4. OT Williams Poehls
  5. G Cyril Richardson
  6. WR Dres Anderson
  7. OT Lawrence Okoye
  8. DE Jimmy Staten
  9. TE Justin Perillo
  10. WR Bralon Addison
  11. LB Josh Shirley

Shirley, 24, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of UNLV back in May. However, he was among the Raiders’ final roster cuts at the start of the season.

Shirley later signed to the Raiders’ practice squad before joining the Buccaneers back in October. Tampa Bay later elected to cut him loose in December, but he wound up signing to the Raiders’ practice squad a few days later.

The Seahawks signed him to a future/reserve contract in January but unfortunately waived him a few weeks after this year’s draft. The Seahawks brought him back for a brief period before later cutting him loose.

In 2015, Shirley appeared in five games and recorded two tackles.
