Wide receiver Brandon Rideau, who led the NFL in touchdown catches in preseason, has agreed to return to the team on the practice squad.
Rideau was one of the final cuts on Saturday and cleared waivers, allowing the Bears to bring him back. The team kept six wide receivers on the 53-man roster and he lost out to former second-round pick aMark Bradley.
Rideau has a nice combination of size and speed and did a little bit of everything offensively, although the work was with the second and third teams. Rideau can improve his standing if he can make strides on special teams.
That means seven of the eight slots on the practice squad have been filled.
