Former Tennessee QB Tyler Bray re-signs with Bears
Despite having thrown just 1 pass during the regular season since 2013, Tyler Bray is still in the NFL because he can spit it. The former Vols quarterback re-signed with the Chicago Bears Wednesday, according to Field Yates of ESPN.
Bray, 28, will be slated for the third-string quarterback slot behind Mitch Trubisky and Nick Foles, as the duo will battle it out for the starting job. The Bears could also decide to sign another quarterback before the season.
Bray was the Vols quarterback from 2010-12, throwing for 7,444 yards, 69 touchdowns and 28 INTs.
Despite leaving school after his junior season, Bray went undrafted in 2013. He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent and stayed with the team through 2017. The California native then signed with the Bears and has played with the team for the last 2 seasons having been off and on from the practice squad to the official roster.
The pocket passer signed with Tennessee in the class of 2010 where he was rated a 3-star prospect and ranked as the nation’s No. 3 pro-style quarterback, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
