The Chicago Bears officially placed C Cornelius Edison on waivers Tuesday and promoted RB Bralon Addison to their active roster.
Edison, 23, originally signed on to the Bears’ practice squad during last season as an undrafted free agent out of Portland State. He was brought back on a future/reserve contract a few months later.
However, the Bears elected to cut Edison loose coming out of the preseason. Chicago later signed him to their practice squad right before the start of the regular season and he’s been on and off of their active roster this year.
In 2016, Edison has been active for five games.
