Bears expected to sign WR Mario Alford, promote Tanner Gentry

Bears expected to sign WR Mario Alford, promote Tanner Gentry”

White has only played in five games since being selected by Chicago with the seventh overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. Thus far in his National Football League career, the 25-year-old White has hauled in 21 receptions for 193 yards.

Freeman, a six-year veteran, had 110 combined tackles in 12 games last season.

He brought back running back Joshua Rounds, another preseason standout for the Bears, and also added wide receiver Mario Alford to the squad.

Gentry's move to the 53-man roster comes a day after the Bears announced they would place Kevin White on injured reserve with a fractured scapula, which he suffered in Sunday's season opener. Chicago released wide receiver Rueben Randle from its injured reserve list.

Past year for the Browns, Alford returned eight punts for 68 yards and eight kickoffs for 190 yards.

The Bears now have Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton, Deonte Thompson, Tre McBride III and Joshua Bellamy on their depth chart at wide receiver. He missed his entire rookie campaign due to a stress fracture in his shin that he suffered in training camp, and previous year, he was limited to four games as a result of a fractured fibula in the same leg where he had the stress fracture. His 1,326 receiving yards in 2016 were the sixth most in Wyoming single-season history, and his 14 consecutive games in 2016 with a reception are a Wyoming single-season record.

"My heart goes out to him", Fox told reporters Monday, according to the team website. Our thoughts and prayers go out to him.
