In search of help at wide receiver, the Bears signed 2016 seventh-round pick Daniel Braverman to the active roster on Tuesday and officially placed linebacker Danny Trevathan on injured reserve.
Braverman, a true slot receiver, had 213 receptions for 2,509 yards and 19 touchdowns over three seasons at Western Michigan. Braverman also returned punts and kicks in college on special teams.
Up until Tuesday, Braverman had spent the entire 2016 season on the Bears’ practice squad.
The Bears are vulnerable at wide receiver with Eddie Royal battling a toe injury that’s limited him in recent weeks. Plus, Chicago’s wideouts dropped a staggering number of passes in last week’s 27-21 loss to Tennessee. Braverman is said to have good hands.
