Bears make practice squad move

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears have re-signed guard Johan Asiata to the practice squad.

Asiata was cut last week but general manager Jerry Angelo frequently rotates players through the eight-man developmental squad during the course of a season to maximize the number of players he can evaluate.

To make room for Asiata, cornerback Woodny Turenne was let go. There is a chance Turenne will return soon. He made some nice plays in training camp and preseason, but the Bears are stocked at the position with six corners, including rookies DeAngelo Smith and D.J. Moore. It's difficult to develop three young players at a position where only two or three are generally needed on the field at a time.
