THE BEARS HAVE SIGNED A WR TO A RESERVE/FUTURE CONTRACT

BY V. CARBONNEAU
The Chicago Bears announced they signed WR Joe Reed to a futures deal on Thursday.

Here is what Alex Shapiro reported on his subject:

Reed was selected by the Chargers in the fifth round of the 2020 draft, but hasn't gotten on the field very much. Reed played in 11 games as a rookie, but spent the 2021 and 2022 seasons on the Chargers practice squad. In those 11 games, Reed made his biggest impact on special teams and had 21 kick returns for 435 yards. On offense he was only targeted once in the passing game, but wasn't able to reel in the catch. He also carried the ball five times for 29 yards and a touchdown.

It's unlikely Reed competes for significant playing time on offense with the Bears, but he could carve out a spot on special teams in some capacity. The Bears now have seven wide receivers under contract for next season: Darnell Mooney, Chase Claypool, Equanimeous St. Brown, Velus Jones Jr., Nsimba Webster, Daurice Fountain and Reed.
