Asurprising young player has been impressing those in attendance at OTAs and minicamp for the Chicago Bears this offseason.
Wide receiver Chris Finke, an undrafted free agent out of the University of Notre Dame, has been mentioned by multiple top insiders as someone who has impressed enough early on to potentially make the team’s final 53-man roster.
Finke, 26, spent time on the San Francisco 49ers‘ practice squad in 2020 before landing with the Kansas City Chiefs in May of 2021. There, he worked with current Bears general manager Ryan Poles, who served as Kansas City’s executive director of player personnel at the time. He never saw the field, however, as he was released with an injury settlement in the fall of 2021 and later re-signed in January of 2022.
The Bears picked him up after Chiefs waived him in May, and he has been impressing ever since.
