The Chicago Bears re-signed offensive tackle Corey Brandon to the practice squad on Wednesday, after terminating the practice squad contract of DE Aston Whiteside on Tuesday.
The Bears also released offensive tackle Chris Williams on Tuesday, and it’s likely the team wanted to add another tackle to the pipeline as a contingency.
Brandon spent the 2012 preseason with Chicago after entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of Oklahoma in 2011.
What the Bears like about Brandon is his size-strength combo. The 6-7, 324-pound offensive lineman spent the 2011 preseason with the Buccaneers appearing in all four preseason contests as a reserve tackle but was waived on September 3.
He spent the first week of the 2012 season on the Bears’ practice squad.
