Coward, 27, signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Old Dominion back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason but was later re-signed to the Bears’ practice squad.
Chicago elected to promote Coward to their active roster towards the end of the 2017 season and he managed to make the 53-man roster each of the next two years. The Bears re-signed him as an exclusive rights free agent in 2020.
Coward signed a one-year deal with the Steelers last year but the team released him in October. He caught on briefly with the Jaguars before re-signing on to the Steelers’ practice squad, where he finished the season.
The Falcons signed Coward to a futures deal for the 2022 season, but ended up releasing him in June.
In 2021, Coward appeared in four games for Pittsburgh, playing 18 total snaps.
