2012 Bears Offseason: Bears Sign Cory Brandon, Cornelius Brown

After waving quarterback Nathan Enderle and offensive guard Mansfield Wrotto, the Chicago Bears found themselves with two open spots on their 90-man roster. Those two spots, though, have been quickly filled, after the Bears signed OT Cory Brandon and CB Cornelius Brown.

Per Windy City Gridiron, Brandon signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2011, but he did not make the team and didn't sign with another team after that. Brown was an undrafted free agent in 2010 who did a stint with the Bears in training camp before being picked up by the Indianapolis Colts, where he played in 10 games in 2010 before being released prior to last season.

Here is an assessment of the signings by Steven Schweickert of Windy City Gridiron:

Not really a whole lot to get excited about over here, as Brown isn't practice-squad eligible, and Brandon is a big guy but there might not be much there beyond his size. The two apparently stood out in veteran minicamp, which they were invited to on a tryout basis.
