Bears Activate WR Marquess Wilson From PUP, Place DT Will Sutton On I.R.

The Chicago Bears made several roster moves on Tuesday including activating WR Marquess Wilson from the PUP list and placing DT Will Sutton on injured reserve.

  • Bears signed DE C.J. Wilson.
  • Bears signed QB Josh Woodrum to their practice squad.

Wilson, 23, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bears back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2.208 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.

He was placed on the PUP list to open the season.

In 2015, Wilson appeared in 11 games for the Bears and recorded 28 receptions for 464 yards receiving and one touchdown. However, his season came to an end after he suffered a foot injury that led to him being placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Sutton, 25, was taken in the third round of the 2014 NFL draft by the Bears. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2,851,068 contract and stands to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Sutton has appeared in eight games and recorded 15 tackles and no sacks for the Bears.

Wilson, 29, is a former seventh-round pick of the Packers back in 2010. Wilson played out his rookie contract with Green Bay before signing on with the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent back in 2014.

Wilson was released by the Lions before signing on with the Saints in June. Wilson was among the Saints’ roster cuts coming out of the preseason before signing on with the Bears last week. Chicago cut him loose last Saturday before re-signing him early in the week.

In 2015, Wilson has appeared in 12 games and recorded 12 11 tackles and sack between the Raiders and Lions.
