According to Howard Balzer, the Chicago Bears brought in four free agents for workouts this week including LB Lorenzo Mauldin.
The full list of tryouts for the Bears includes:
Mauldin, 26, was arrested last summer for misdemeanor assault for an alleged attack that occurred at New York nightclub. Mauldin allegedly punched a man in the face during an altercation after the man spilled champagne on Mauldin.
The victim later sued Mauldin but charges were eventually dropped.
Mauldin suffered a season-ending back injury last year that led to him being placed on injured reserve. He was among the Jets’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
In 2016, Mauldin appeared in 11 games for the Jets and recorded 16 tackles, 2.5 sacks, an interception and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 82 edge defender out of 109 qualifying players.
