The Chicago Bears are signing wide receiver/punt returner Trent Taylor, who was cut by the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday, to their 53-man roster on Wednesday, according to a source. The Bears also claimed defensive end Khalid Kareem off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts and defensive back Quindell Johnson from the Los Angeles Rams and cut defensive end Terrell Lewis. Taylor will serve as a return option and as receiver depth for the Bears to open the 2023 regular season. The 29-year-old had 340 yards on punt returns in 2022 in Cincinnati. He's not on the fantasy radar.
