Bears Worked Out 7 Players Including DT Sealver Siliga & DE C.J. Wilson

The Chicago Bears worked out seven players this week including DT Sealver Siliga and DE C.J. Wilson, according to Brad Biggs.

The others players to work out for the Bears include: OT Clay DeBord, G Austin Shepherd, OT Arturo Uzdavinis, RB Joique Bell (signed) and OT Colin Kelly (signed).

Siliga, 26, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Utah back in 2011. He lasted just a few months with the 49ers before signing on with the Broncos and later being traded to the Seahawks for G John Moffitt. Seattle elected to waive Siliga a few months later before he signed to the Patriots’ practice squad.

The Patriots didn’t tender Siliga a restricted offer, which allowed him to test the market as an unrestricted free agent. The Seahawks signed him to a contract back in March before putting him on injured reserve and later cutting him loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2015, Siliga appeared in 13 games for the Patriots and recorded 28 tackles and no sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 79 interior defensive lineman out of 123 qualifying players.

Wilson, 29, is a former seventh-round pick of the Packers back in 2010. Wilson played out his rookie contract with Green Bay before signing on with the Raiders as an unrestricted free agent back in 2014.

Wilson was released by the Lions before signing on with the Saints in June. Wilson was among the Saints’ roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

In 2015, Wilson has appeared in 12 games and recorded 12 11 tackles and sack between the Raiders and Lions.
