Bears Worked Out 7 Players Including FB Malcolm Johnson


According to Brad Biggs, the Bears worked out seven players on Monday including FB Malcolm Johnson, WR Greg Ellingson, WR Orlandus Harris, WR Kenny Shaw, WR Dionate Spencer, WR Derel Walker, G Derek Dennis.

Johnson, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was in the second-year of a four-year, $2,399,452 rookie contract and was set to make a base salary of $525,000 this season when Cleveland cut him loose back in October.

The Seahawks signed him to their practice squad and eventually made his way to the active roster, but the team decided to waive him to make room for WR Kevin Smith

In 2016, Johnson appeared in seven games for the Seahawks and recorded five receptions for 44 yards and lost one fumble. He also contributed one rushing attempt for two yards.

Dennis, 28, originally signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Temple back in 2012. Chicago, unfortunately, made him one of their final roster cuts coming out of the 2013 preseason.

The Panthers signed him to their practice squad back in 2014 but was eventually waived during the next offseason.

He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
