Cornerback Breon Borders Joins the Bears’ Practice Squad

Chicago Bears

When the Chicago Bears lost offensive lineman Zachary Thomas from their practice squad roster, it was only a matter of time before the team filled the void.

And in a football world where there is no such thing as having too many able-bodied defensive backs, the Bears signing cornerback Breon Borders to the practice squad makes sense. The team announced the signing on Tuesday afternoon:

Borders, 27, played collegiately at Duke and has 31 games (including 6 starts!) of professional experience with the Bills (2017), Jaguars (2018-19), Washington (2019), Titans (2020-21), and Cardinals (2021). He has also spent time in the camps of the Raiders (2017), Texans (2018), Steelers (2020), and Dolphins (2020). But most of his in-game playing experience came in 2019 (12 games, 11 with the Jags) and 2021 (12 games, 11 with the Titans). And while Borders has an interception and fumble recovery to his name, there isn’t much more after that on his Pro Football Reference page.

But hey, he’s got some highlights on his résumé I found worth sharing:

I’ll never pass up an opportunity to share football highlights on a baseball field.

In the end, we’ll always welcome a body healthy enough to take some reps at the cornerback position. Those players are always welcome in these parts.
