The Bears made it official today by signing cornerback DeAngelo Smith to the practice squad a week after he was released.
They cut defensive end Joe Clermond to make room for him. The Bears are now carrying two cornerbacks on the practice squad in Smith and Woodny Turenne.
Elsewhere on the tryout circuit, a league source said that ex-Bears safety Todd Johnson had a tryout with the Detroit Lions. Linebacker Kevin Malast, who was with the Bears during camp and preseason, had a workout in Houston. Wide receiver Brandon Rideau had a workout with the Cleveland Browns. Wide receiver Derek Kinder, a seventh-round pick this year, also had a workout with the Seattle Seahawks.
