Another day and another move for the Bears.

The Chicago Bears announced on Friday that they have claimed running back/kick returner Darrynton Evans off waivers from the Tennesee Titans.

The Bears needed another running back after they reportedly released speedster Tarik Cohen.

Cohen missed most of 2020 and all of the 2021 season with his knee injury.

In two seasons, Evans had 16 rushes for 61 yards and caught four passes for 38 yards and a touchdown last season. He also had ten kickoff returns for a 22.3 average.

He was a 2020 third-round draft pick (No. 93 overall) out of App State, where he earned Sun Belt MVP honors in 2020.

The Bears still have standout running back David Montgomery with Khalil Herbert and Evans giving a nice duo to spare some carries for him during the season.

Damien Williams is set for free agency.
