Bunting signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Monday.
Analysis: The 23-year-old joined the Colts' practice squad in early October but never ended up making his way to the 53-man roster. Bunting worked as a run-blocking specialist during his senior year at the University of California in 2018, catching 18 passes for 195 yards.
Bunting signed with the Colts' practice squad Tuesday.
Analysis: The undrafted rookie will join the Colts' before their bye week. He's considered a run-blocking specialist with just 18 receptions for 195 yards and no touchdowns in his final season with the University of California. Bunting will be on standby in case Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle or Mo Alie-Cox get injured.
The Bears released Bunting on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Bunting was an undrafted free agent out of California, and even led the team in receiving yards during Week 1 of the preseason. He couldn't stick with a veteran tight end room, and could be a practice squad candidate with the Bears or another team in the league.
Bunting caught three passes for 77 yards in the Bears' preseason loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: Bunting found an opening in the defense after making a catch down the seam to rip off a 45-yard gain on his way to an impressive performance against the Carolina backups. He's currently fifth on the depth chart at tight end, and the Bears would need to carry four tight ends on the roster for him to have a realistic chance of making the regular-season roster.
