REPORT: Bears Set to Sign RB Spencer Ware
The Chicago Bears have reportedly signed Spence Ware to add depth to their thin running backs corps.
The Chicago Bears were busy at work on Tuesday morning. Ryan Pace added some much-needed depth to the roster by bolstering the running back room. Initial reports indicate the Bears are finalizing a deal with Spencer Ware.
Ware also posted a message about his new team on his LinkedIn page.
The 29-year-old running back has spent the better part of his career with the Kansas City Chiefs. However, it’s important to note his time there coincided with Matt Nagy’s tenure with the Chiefs.
Ware has struggled with injuries throughout his career as he missed all of 2017 due to a torn PCL and additional knee damage. Additionally, he missed most of the 2019 season after undergoing ankle surgery while he was a member of the Colts. Soon after Indianapolis cut Ware, he re-signed with the Chiefs and played briefly before being shut down for the season with a shoulder injury.
Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see if the Bears sign him to the practice squad to replace Lamar Miller. Miller signed with the Bears practice squad earlier this season but was recently poached by the Washington Football Team. The Bears could also elect to bring Ware onto the active roster as Cordarrelle Patterson deals with a minor knee injury.
