Although Dan Sheldon cleared waivers, it didn't take long for one NFC team to invite him to tryout…
Sheldon Added to Bears Practice Squad
As long as Sheldon passes his physical on Wednesday, he'll wear jersey number 84 for Chicago. The Bears' interest in him is primarily as depth at the slot receiver position, not as a returns specialist.
"They're set for returns and said that's just an added bonus," Sheldon told The Beacon News.
The 5-foot-8 receiver drew interest from the Buccaneers and the Packers before getting his offer from the Bears. For Sheldon, who went to high school in Burlington, Illinois, joining the Bears was a dream come true.
"I'm thrilled to be part of the organization that I watched and admired for umpteen years now and hope I can make a contribution," he said.
