The Chicago Bears placed DT Jimmy Staten on waivers Monday, according to Doug Kyed.
Staten, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in the 2014 NFL Draft. He was unable to make the team’s 53-man roster but was later added to their practice squad. Seattle elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract only to waive him soon after.
Staten has had brief stints with the Giants, Patriots and Chiefs before he caught on with the Bears a few weeks into the regular season. The Bears promoted him to their active roster in time for Week 11 but he did not appear during the game.
Staten has yet to appear in an NFL game.
