More depth for the WR room.
The Chicago Bears announced that they have signed receiver Joe Reed to a futures/reserve contract on Thursday.
Reed has spent the last two seasons on the Chargers' practice squad but in his rookie season, he appeared in 11 games and had a big impact on special teams with 21 kick returns for 435 yards.
He also had five carries for 29 yards and a touchdown during in 2020.
Reed was a fifth-round draft pick of the Chargers in 2020 out of Virginia.
This is a solid depth move at the receiver position, as you never have enough players that can try to carve a niche out of special teams and possibly make a roster spot.
