Bears Worked Out Three WRs Including Carlos Henderson

According to Howard Balzer, the Chicago Bears brought in three receivers for workouts on Tuesday including Reggie Davis, Cyril Grayson and Carlos Henderson.

Henderson, 23, was selected with the No. 82 overall pick by the Broncos in the 2017 NFL draft. He signed a four-year, $3.32 million contract with the Broncos and was set to make base salaries of $555,000 and $645,000 over the next two years of the agreement when he was waived during roster cuts.

The Broncos re-signed Henderson to their practice squad and he served his one-game suspension to open the season, only to release him soon after.

During his three-year college career at Louisiana Tech, Henderson recorded 147 receptions for 2,878 yards receiving (19.6 YPR) for 28 touchdowns. He also finished with 32 rushing attempts for 259 yards (8.1 YPC) and two touchdowns.

Davis, 22, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia back in 2017. He was, unfortunately, waived coming out of the preseason and later claimed by the Browns.

Davis later returned to the Falcons, signing on to their practice squad and eventually re-signing with Atlanta this past January. However, Davis was once again waived coming out of the preseason.

Davis had a brief stint on the Eagles’ practice squad but was cut after a few days. He worked out for the Saints last week but was not signed to a contract.

During his four-year college career at Georgia, Davis recorded 47 kickoff returns for 998 yards (21.2 YPR) and 34 punt returns for 251 yards (7.4 YPR) and scored one touchdown. As a receiver, Davis caught 38 passes for 618 yards receiving (16.3 YPC) for two touchdowns.
