Housler, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Cardinals who played out his rookie contract with the team. The Browns wound up signing him to a one-year, $1.76 million contract back in April, but he was placed on injured reserve close to a month ago.
Cleveland wound up waiving him from I.R. on November 17. Housler also landed a workout with the Jets since being waived, but was not offered a contract.
This season, Housler has appeared in six games and recording just a single reception for six yards receiving for the Browns.
We will provide more information regarding the Bears and any of these players once the news becomes available.
