The Chicago Bears officially re-signed veteran OT Matt McCants on Tuesday.
The Bears actually released McCants on Monday, but it’s clear that this was just a procedural move that allowed them to re-sign TE Zach Miller before placing him on the reserve/PUP list today.
McCants, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Giants back in 2012. He lasted just over a year in New York before he was waived at the start of the 2013 and signed to the Raiders’ practice squad.
In total, McCants spent over three years in Oakland before he was waived in 2016 and later claimed by the Browns. McCants’ stay in Cleveland was limited to just a few weeks before he was once again claimed off of waivers, this time by the Bears.
The Browns did, however, bring McCants back last year but they later placed him on injured reserve in August and eventually cut him loose with an injury settlement. McCants signed on with the Bears last month.
In 2016, McCants was active for four games and played a total of 38 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
