Bears Promote QB Tyler Bray, Release TE Bradley Sowell

     

According to Herbie Teope, the Bears promoted QB Tyler Bray from their practice squad to the active roster in time for Week 5’s game. 

The Bears announced that they released TE Bradley Sowell in a corresponding roster move. 

Bray will serve as the Bears’ backup quarterback Chase Daniel with Mitchell Trubisky dealing with a shoulder injury. 

Bray, 27, wound up signing on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his three-year, $1.485 million rookie contract when Bray and the Chiefs agreed to a two-year extension before the start of the 2015 season.

The Bears signed Bray to a contract this past March but waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. Chicago signed him to their practice squad once he passed through waivers unclaimed and he spent the year there apart from a short stint near the end of the season.  

Chicago re-signed him to a one-year contract back in March but waived him as they trimmed down to the 53-man limit. The Bears added him to their practice squad once he passed through waivers unclaimed. 

For his career, Bray appeared in one game for the Chiefs in 2017 and attempted one pass.
