After spending a few weeks at the end of last season with the New York Jets, Darius Reynaud signed today with the Chicago Bears, per Profootballtalk.com.
The team released return specialist Eric Weems to sign Reynaud. The WVU standout has the ability to help the team on offense, either in the backfield or at receiver, but will see most of his on-field time as a return man.
As a returner, Reynaud has three career touchdowns. He brings averages of 9.7 yards per punt return and 22.6 yards per kick return over the course of his career which began in 2008 with the Minnesota Vikings.
Mundy joins fellow Mountaineer Ryan Mundy on the Bears roster. The team plays their third game of the NFL Preseason this Friday night against the Seattle Seahawks who is still without Bruce Irvin as he continues to recover from offseason hip surgery. That game can be seen on the NFL Network, starting at 10:oo pm ET.
