Jenkins, 28, first signed on with the Bears in March. He’ll help to provide depth behind starting nose tackle Eddie Goldman in Vic Fangio‘s 3-4 set. Jenkins bounced around in 2016 but he was a 12-game starter for New Orleans as recently as 2015.

    Tanner Gentry could be a real player. I’m happy he’s back with us on the practice squad but after the fam Meredith injury we could’ve used him on the active roster. Hopefully he’ll be brought up soon

    Nothing the Bears do will matter until we have new ownership and in the meantime a new Head Coach. That idiot Fox could have gotten Trubisky killed against the Browns. If McCaskeys weren’t so cheap they would have had Pace fire him Thursday after the game.
