Bears Worked Out 5 Players Including LB Akeem Ayers

According to Howard Balzer, the Bears brought in five players for workouts on Tuesday including veteran LB Akeem Ayers.

The full list includes:

  1. LB Akeem Ayers
  2. LB Chris Casher
  3. LB Vontarrius Dora
  4. LB Jonathan Freeny
  5. DE Praise Martin-Oguike

Ayers has been very popular the past few weeks, working out for the Saints, Patriots, and Giants since he was cut loose.

Ayers, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Titans back in 2011. He was later traded to the Patriots in return for a 2015 sixth-round pick.

The Rams signed him to a two-year, $6 million contract with $2.75 million guaranteed back in March of 2015. However, he was cut loose by the team in September of last year.

The Colts signed Ayers to a contract just a few days after he was released, but elected to move on from his this past weekend.

In 2016, Ayers appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and recorded 21 total tackles, two sacks, one interception, and two pass defenses.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
