>>Bears Sign FB

 

The Chicago Bears have signed veteran fullback Darrel Young and waived rookie Joe Sommers.

The Bears announced the moves on Thursday, a week after players reported to training camp.

Young has started 36 of his 90 career games, totaling 185 rushing yards on 51 attempts and seven touchdowns with the Washington Redskins from 2010-15. He also had 45 receptions for 432 yards and six touchdowns.

 

Sommers had joined the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

 

The Bears also announced offensive lineman Amini Silatolu has passed his physical. Silatolu signed with the team on July 20 after four seasons with the Carolina Panthers. Silatolu was declared active/PUP before training camp because of a knee injury.

 

>>Carroll Kicks DE Bennett Out of Practice

 

On Thursday, the day after Michael Bennett called Jay Cutler the worst quarterback in the NFL (here's a response to that) and made some other unfiltered quips about his fellow players stationed elsewhere around the league, Bennett experienced a bit of a tumultuous day in Seattle.

 

He got kicked out of practice by Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.

 

ESPN's Sheil Kapadia explains:

 

During a team drill, in between snaps, left guard Mark Glowinski appeared to get into it with Bennett and defensive end Cliff Avril.

 

Bennett had to be restrained by defensive tackle Jordan Hill and others before practice continued. He sat out the rest of the session.

 

After practice ended, Bennett was still upset. He got into a shouting match with the offensive linemen who were huddling on the field before Avril escorted him into the locker room.

 

Carroll said, per ESPN, quote - "It's translating into sometimes we lose a little bit of the poise that we need. We can't play like that. You get in a skirmish, you get thrown out. That's what happens. So that happened today. And that's just the way you do it, the way we do it."
