Roster Move: Bears sign veteran OT Julién Davenport


The Bears on Monday signed veteran tackle Julién Davenport to a one-year contract.

Davenport, 27, has played both left tackle and right tackle throughout his first five NFL seasons with the Texans (2017-18), Dolphins (2019-20) and Colts (2021), appearing in 60 games with 32 starts.

Davenport was selected by Houston in the fourth round of the 2017 draft (130th overall) out of Bucknell, the same round in which the Bears chose safety Eddie Jackson (No. 112) and running back Tarik Cohen (No. 119).

Davenport played in 11 games with four starts as a rookie with the Texans in 2017 and then appeared in all 16 contests with 14 starts in 2018. 

The 6-7, 315-pounder was part of a blockbuster trade Aug. 31, 2019, that included four players and five draft picks. He was dealt to the Dolphins as part of a swap that sent Pro Bowl tackle Laremy Tunsil to the Texans. 

After playing in 24 games with nine starts in two seasons with Miami, Davenport spent last year with the Colts, splitting time at both tackle positions while appearing in nine contests with four starts.
