The Chicago Bears are reportedly close to signing wide receiver Max Komar to their practice squad. The former Arizona Cardinals wide out tweeted on Monday that he is signing with the Bears and moving to Chicago today. A league source confirmed that Bears general manager Jerry Angelo has been interested in Komar ever since he was placed on injured reserve by the Cards.
He suffered a knee injury in the preseason and released by Arizona last week. Komar, who was college teammates with Bears third-string QB Nate Enderle at Idaho, is still eligible for Chicago's practice squad despite playing in eight games for the Cardinals last season. He caught 12 passes for 117 yards.
