The Chicago Bears made a minor roster switch on Wednesday afternoon heading into their final preseason game, re-signing wide receiver Terriun Crump to take the place of recently waived linebacker Dom DeCicco, according to the team's official Twitter account.
The 23-year-old Crump was not selected in April's 2012 NFL draft, but quickly signed on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent and appeared to impress coaches in camp on numerous occasions. Although he was waived from the roster on Aug. 26, 2012, during the most recent round of cuts, the decision to release DeCicco due to a nagging injury ultimately opened up another roster spot.
A second-year linebacker from Pittsburgh, DeCicco recorded 12 special-teams tackles as a rookie last season for coach Lovie Smith. But after suffering a serious groin injury in Chicago's preseason opener against the Broncos, DeCicco wasn't able to recover quick enough to establish himself in the competition for the team's linebacker spots.
