Could be option in Chicago

The Bears hosted Rudock for a workout Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Bears are in search of quarterback depth because Mitchell Trubisky is dealing with a shoulder injury. Rudock hasn't played a game since 2017 when he played just a handful of offensive snaps. Tyler Bray is the favorite to be Nick Foles' backup, but Rudock could be a practice squad option. Kyle Sloter joined Rudock for Wednesday's workout.

Back in South Beach

Rudock was added to Miami's practice squad Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction wire.

Analysis: Rucdock was let go by the Dolphins this offseason after spending all of 2019 on the team's practice squad. The Michigan product will look to earn a spot on a 53-man roster in Miami or elsewhere around the league.

Staying in Miami

Moves to practice squad

The Dolphins signed Rudock to their practice squad Thursday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Rudock was waived by Miami after a solid preseason, and he now has a chance to make an impact on the practice squad. The 2016 sixth-round pick's knowledge of the Dolphins' offense makes him a candidate to stick with the team's practice squad for the foreseeable future.

Cut by Dolphins

Rudock was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Rudock's only chance to make the 53-man roster was going to be if the team opted to go with three quarterbacks. Instead they are just going to roll with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen. Given Rudock's knowledge of the offense, he figures to be a prime candidate to join the Dolphins' practice squad.

Goes distance in preseason finale

Rudock completed 22 of 29 passes for 229 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason win over the Saints.

Analysis: Miami's No. 3 quarterback played the whole game and looked good, leading the offense to points in three of his four first-half drives. Rudock was rarely active during his three seasons with the Lions, suiting up for only three games in 2017, and that's unlikely to change for the 2016 sixth-round pick with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen ahead of him on the Dolphins' depth chart.

Inks with Miami

Rudock signed a reserve/future contract with the Dolphins on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Rudock has spent his first two seasons in Detroit, but mainly on its practice squad. He did suit up three times this past season, and completed three passes on five attempts of 24-yards and an interception. He will now look to make an impression in Miami earn a spot on the Dolphins 53-man roster to start the season.

Waived by Detroit

Rudock was waived by Detroit on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: To nobody's surprise, Rudock was unable to supplant Matt Cassel as the No. 2 quarterback behind Matt Stafford in Detroit. The Lions are hoping Rudock will clear waivers and become a member of the practice squad, but there's no guarantee another team won't take a shot at the Michigan product.
