Chicago Bears: LeQuan Lewis

The Chicago Bears signed receiver Demetrius Fields and defensive tackles Corvey Irvin and Christian Tupou, in addition to agreeing to terms with cornerback Maurice Jones.

All four worked with the team during last weekend’s rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. In other roster moves, the Bears also released linebacker Dom DeCicco and cornerback LeQuan Lewis.

A rookie out of Northwestern, Fields caught 114 passes for 1,203 yards and seven touchdowns over four seasons with the Wildcats. Irvin, meanwhile, is a former third-round pick of the Carolina Panthers who has played in 18 games over three seasons with three teams (Carolina, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville), contributing 11 tackles.

Tupou finished his college eligibility at USC, but went undrafted and unsigned in 2012. Tupou played in 41 games from 2007-11 with the Trojans, contributing 53 tackles, including seven stops for lost yardage.

Jones played collegiately at Temple, and made 12 starts in four seasons with the Owls.

Bears sign CB LeQuan Lewis

February, 11, 2013
The Chicago Bears announced the signing of cornerback LeQuan Lewis on Monday.

The well-traveled Lewis began his NFL career with the Tennessee Titans in 2011 as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State. He also had stints with the Oakland Raiders and New York Jets before appearing in eight games last year with the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, totaling four tackles, one interception and a pair of pass breakups.

Lewis also returned five kickoffs for 106 yards.

The Bears may be forced to replace several reserve cornerbacks next season as veterans Kelvin Hayden, D.J. Moore and Zack Bowman are all scheduled to be unrestricted free agents.
