Former Bengals WR Trent Taylor signs with Bears

Trent Taylor was one of the more notable cuts for the Cincinnati Bengals as the team formulated the final 53-man roster.

Taylor’s release wasn’t a surprise given the presence of rookie wide receivers Charlie Jones and Andrei Iosivas, but it did feel like Taylor might slip back onto the practice squad as an insurance policy.

But Taylor elected to sign with the Chicago Bears, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, a no-brainer move given that he’s going to be part of an active roster there, as opposed to a practice squad.

The Bengals figure to put other names at the position on the practice squad and as a result of this, might keep an eye on returners on the waiver wire and overall in the coming weeks.
