Bears sign DeCicco, waive Trahan

Trahan played on special teams in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

The Bears on Tuesday also re-signed fullback Harvey Unga to the practice squad and terminated the practice squad contract of undrafted rookie quarterback Matt Blanchard.

Unga spent the first four weeks of the season on the Bears practice squad and has been with the team the last three preseasons but has not appeared in a regular season game.
