Bears Sign CB Brandon Boykin & WR B.J. Daniels


The Chicago Bears announced Wednesday evening that they’ve signed DB Brandon Boykin and WR B.J. Daniels to contracts.

Boykin worked out for the Cowboys a few weeks ago, but they did not extend him a contract offer following the session. Before that, Boykin visited with the Falcons.

Boykin, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. He was traded to the Steelers last year for a 2016 fifth round pick after Pittsburgh sustained some injuries at cornerback.

The Panthers elected to sign him to a one-year contract back in March before cutting him loose close a few months ago.

In 2015, Boykin was active for all 16 games and recorded 25 tackles, one sack, an interception, a forced fumble and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 38 cornerback out of 111 qualifying players.

Daniels, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2013. He lasted less than a year in San Francisco before he was waived and later claimed by the Seahawks.

Daniels was off of the Seahawks’ practice squad for over two years before the Texans signed him to their active roster in December of last year. Unfortunately, Daniels’ stay in Houston lasted just a few months, as he was waived in the weeks leading up to this year’s draft.

The Giants elected to signed Daniels to a contract in May, but was cut loose just a month later.

In 2015, Daniels appeared in eight games and record one catch for 12 yards receiving to go along with six rushes for for six yards and no touchdowns. He also completed one of two passes for seven yards.
