Duff got picked up by the Bears. Didn't see much of the preseason games, but I guess he was a disappointment.

They are way thin on CB's. RW just got hurt and will be out for a while. I thought he was going to push J.J. Guess not.

I though he would be a better keep with a CB/PR. Than putting JJ at WR/PR. I guess JJ is blowing him away at returns.

You suppose they know he's injured? Rotator cuff.

Despite his injured shoulder the Bears claimed Duff as well as a CB from the Jags off waivers. They had some bad luck with injuries in their secondary. Wonder if he has a shot of making their roster now with Azumah out for a while. This makes the second time the Bears have claimed a CB waived by us this preseason. Notice they waived Kelly to make room for him.

Chicago Bears: The Bears have augmented their injury-depleted secondary by claiming cornerbacks Vontez Duff and Blue Adams off waivers. To make room for them, wide receiver Jamin Elliott and corner Eric Kelly were released.

A second-year veteran, Adams was released this week by Jacksonville, after having appeared in eight games for the Jaguars in 2003. Duff was the Houston Texans' sixth-round pick in this year's draft but was released on Monday after a poor training camp.
