The Chicago Bears signed wide receiver Raymond Radway to the practice squad on Tuesday, terminating the contract of practice squad receiver Joe Anderson.
Anderson played three seasons at Texas Southern (2009-11) after starting collegiate career at Louisiana Tech (2007). He earned a spot on the Bears’ practice squad as an undrafted free agent.
Radway also entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent, with the Dallas Cowboys in 2011 out of Abilene Christian University.
On September 1, 2011, while playing a preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, Radway suffered a broken left fibula and tibia after leaping for a catch in the final seconds of the game.
The 6-3, 204-pound receiver was placed on injured reserve before the opening contest of the 2011 season. He spent two weeks on the Dallas practice squad this season following final roster cuts.
The Cowboys had relatively high hopes for Radway, stashing him on injured reserve last year, but he was beaten out by undrafted rookies Cole Beasley and Tim Benford this year. Coach Jason Garrett lamented over Radway's inconsistency.
There’s no doubt that Radway has talent, but he’ll be hard pressed to make any kind of impact on the Bears' Scout Team.
