Bears Leave DB Quintin Demps On IR, Despite Designation To Return

The Chicago Bears did not activate DB Quintin Demps from injured reserve, despite designating him as one of their two players to return this year.

This means that Demps will remain on the injured reserve for the final two weeks of the 2017 season.

Demps, 32, is a former fourth-round pick of the Eagles back in 2008. He spent just over two years in Philadelphia before he was cut at the start of the 2010 season and later signed on with the Texans.

After that, Demps played for the Chiefs and Giants before returning to the Texans in August of 2015. The Texans later brought him back on a one-year deal worth $1.5 million last year.

Demps departed Houston for a three-year, $13.5 million contract that included $1.5 million guaranteed with the Bears this past March. He stands to make base salaries of $2.5 million and $3 million over the next two years.

In 2017, Demps appeared in three games and recorded 12 tackles and no interceptions or pass defenses.
