Horsted caught all five of his targets for 104 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's preseason win over the Titans.
Analysis: The full extent of the 24-year-old's NFL resume is six games for the Bears in 2019 during which he caught only eight passes, but Horsted looked like Jimmy Graham in his prime Saturday. He displayed exceptional hands in grabbing a 20-yard pass from Justin Fields along the sideline between two defenders in the first half for his initial TD, and then the tight end topped himself in the second half by making a spectacular one-handed catch down the seam on a toss from Nick Foles before turning on the jets for a 54-yard score. In between, he brought home a six-yard touchdown from Foles on a slant route. Holsted still seems like a long shot for a 53-man roster spot given the Bears' depth at TE -- Graham, second-year man Cole Kmet and veteran Jesse James all seem like locks -- but this performance might give the coaching staff something to think about, as his size and skills could allow him to fill the same kind of move tight end/H-back role in Matt Nagy's scheme that Trey Burton turned into 569 yards and six TDs back in 2018.
