Bears Worked Out P Jeff Locke

     

Brad Biggs reports that the Bears brought in free agent P Jeff Locke for a tryout on Friday.

It’s worth mentioning that Chicago is set to play against the Eagles and left-footed punter Donnie Jones this weekend, so this is them likely getting some extra reps with a left-footed punter before Sunday’s game.

Locke, 28, if a former fifth-round pick by the Vikings in the 2013 NFL Draft. He finished his four-year rookie contract with Minnesota and reportedly had several teams interested in him this offseason.

The Colts signed Lock to a two-year, $3.45 million deal with $1.25 million in guaranteed this past March. Unfortunately, the Colts cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

The Lions signed Locke to a contract a few weeks into the regular season before cutting him loose a few weeks ago.

In 2017, Locke has appeared in five games for the Lions and totaled 1,140 punt yards on 27 attempts (42.22 YPA).
