Bears bring back Kyle Adams, release Jonathan Scott

The Bears on Tuesday signed tight end Kyle Adams and released veteran tackle Jonathan Scott.


Kyle AdamsAdams had been waived Monday to make room on the roster for tight end Dante Rosario, who was acquired in a trade with the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears now have four tight ends on their 53-man roster in Adams, Rosario, Martellus Bennett and Steve Maneri.

Adams joined the Bears in 2011 as an undrafted free agent from Purdue, catching four passes for 40 yards and recording one special teams tackle while appearing in 23 games with two starts.

Scott appeared in 12 games with seven starts last year after signing with the Bears on Sept. 10, one day after their regular season opener. The 6-6, 318-pounder started five of the final six games at right tackle after supplanting Gabe Carimi.

Prior to joining the Bears, Scott spent his first six NFL seasons with the Lions (2006-07), Bills (2008-09) and Steelers (2010-11). He was selected by Detroit in the fifth round of the 2006 draft out of Texas and started in Pittsburgh's Super Bowl loss to the Packers in 2010.

Scott's departure leaves the Bears with three reserve offensive linemen in Eben Britton, James Brown and Taylor Boggs.
