The Bears will host free agent cornerback Kayvon Webster on Wednesday, a source tells Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (on Twitter). Even after drafting two cornerbacks last week, the Bears are apparently still in the hunt for secondary help.
Webster joined the Texans late last offseason but played in just two games thanks to multiple injuries and two separate IR stints. Webster, who was lauded for his talent while buried behind big name corners in Denver, has failed to take the next leap forward in his career. Many expected big things when he reunited with Wade Phillips as a member of the Rams in 2017, but he failed to make a major impact in eleven games before suffering a season-ending Achilles tear.
The Bears project to start Prince Amukamara and Kyle Fuller at outside cornerback with new addition Buster Skrine manning the slot. After those three, the Bears have veteran Sherrick McManis, Kevin Toliver, John Franklin, Michael Joseph, Jonathon Mincy, and two late-round draft picks in Kansas State’s Duke Shelley and Valdosta State’s Stephen Denmark.
