Roster Shuffle: Bears Re-Sign Bradley Sowell to Active Roster, Abdullah Anderson to Practice Squad

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bars’ roster shuffle continued with familiar faces returning to the roost.

Here are the latest moves:

The Bears re-signed defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson to the practice squad. You might remember Anderson as one of the defensive linemen who was up in a pinch as a short-handed defense needed some additional bulk up front with Akiem Hicks and Bilal Nichols out of action. Anderson played 22 snaps on Sunday, but was waived in order to clear a spot on the roster on Monday.

There was a moment in which we believed promoting Tyler Bray from the practice squad would be the most sensible way to fill that open space on the roster. Instead, the Bears re-signed tight end Bradley Sowell to the 53-man roster. A curious decision, considering that Chicago has four more healthy tight ends than it does healthy quarterbacks. But I suppose there is still time to make more moves before the team takes its talents across the pond to London.
