Bears extend WR Collin Johnson, sign DB Tarvarius Moore

The Chicago Bears announced a pair of roster moves on Friday afternoon, just a few days before the new league year begins. The Bears re-negotiated/extended wide receiver Collin Johnson and signed defensive back Tarvarius Moore.

Johnson joined the Bears midway through last season after playing the last two years with the New York Giants. He spent much of the year on the practice squad, but appeared in a handful of games and made one reception for 11 yards in the penultimate game of the 2023 season.

Moore, meanwhile, comes to the Bears after spending five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, from 2018 to 2022. A third-round pick out of Southern Miss, Moore was a depth safety for San Francisco. His best season came in 2020, when he started eight games and recorded 52 total tackles, one for a loss, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. He signed with the Green Bay Packers last year, but was placed on injured reserve prior to the regular season and was released.
