Roster Move: Bears agree to terms with QB Brett Rypien


The Bears on Wednesday agreed to terms with quarterback Brett Rypien on a one-year contract, pending a physical.

Rypien, 27, has appeared in 10 NFL games with four starts over four seasons with the Broncos (2020-22) and Rams (2023). He has completed 58.3 percent of his passes for 950 yards with four touchdowns, nine interceptions and a 59.9 passer rating.

Rypien entered the NFL in 2019 as an undrafted free agent with the Broncos out of Boise State. He played in eight games with three starts over three seasons in Denver from 2020-22 before making one start with the Rams last season.

After being waived last Nov. 7, Rypien spent time late last year on the practice squad with the Seahawks and Jets. In Seattle, he worked with offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, who has since joined the Bears in the same role.

Rypien is the nephew of Super Bowl XXVI MVP quarterback Mark Rypien, who played 11 NFL seasons with the Redskins (1988-93), Browns (1994), Rams (1995 and 1997), Eagles (1996) and Colts (2001).
