Horsted, 24, played wide receiver at Princeton before transitioning to tight end in the NFL. He signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent following the 2019 NFL draft.
Horsted was waived coming out of the preseason by Chicago and later re-signed to the practice squad. He was brought up to the active roster in 2019 and did not appear in 2020 until being called up again in 2021.
In 2021, Horsted has appeared in seven games for the Bears and caught two passes for 21 yards and two touchdowns.
