Bears Training Camp: Chicago Signs WR Rashied Davis

The unexpected retirement of backup wide receiver Devin Thomas has left a small hole in Chicago's depth chart, and to remedy that the team announced Monday that it has signed WR Rashied Davis.

Davis spent six years with the bears from 2005-to-2010, catching 88 balls for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns. Davis was also contributed on special teams, returns kicks and covering kicks and punts. He spent 2011 with the Detroit Lions, totalling four receptions for 63 yards.

In Chicago, Davis will be behind a stable of receivers that includes Brandon Marshall, Devin Hester, Earl Bennett and rookie Alshon Jeffery. If all goes right for Chicago, Davis won't see the field much on offense, but he does bring some experience to the table.
