Per the NFL’s transaction wire, the Bears have claimed WR DeAndre Carter off waivers from the Texans.
Carter provides depth at receiver and returner for Chicago.
Carter, 27, originally signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State back in 2015. He lasted just a few months in Baltimore before he was waived coming out of the preseason.
Carter had brief stints with the Raiders, Patriots and 49ers before signing on with the Eagles in 2018. He was on and off of the Eagles’ roster last season before eventually being claimed by the Texans.
Houston re-signed Carter to a contract extension this past March.
In 2020, Carter has appeared in nine games for the Texans and caught one pass for eight yards. He has also totaled 250 kick return yards and another 96 punt return yards.
