The Bears will re-sign defensive back DeAngelo Smith to their practice squad today, a league source said.
Smith was released from the 53-man roster last week to make room for linebacker Darrell McClover, who was signed to help on special teams.
Smith was a fifth-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys, and was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns. The Bears claimed him off waivers when they waived/injured cornerback Trumaine McBride following the season opener at Green Bay.
The Bears announced they would work Smith at cornerback. Some NFL types believe he is best suited as a safety. He played both last season at Cincinnati where he was one of the better defensive backs in the Big East Conference.
It is unknown who the Bears will release from the practice squad to make room for Smith.
