Bears bring back Adams, cut Scott

The Chicago Bears brought back tight end Kyle Adams on Tuesday night and terminated the contract of offensive tackle Jonathan Scott.

Adams has played in 23 games for the Bears with two starts over the past two seasons and has hauled in four receptions for 40 yards, in addition to contributing a tackle on special teams. The team released Adams earlier in the week when they acquired tight end Dante Rosario in a trade with the Dallas Cowboys.

As for Scott, a six-year veteran who has spent time with Detroit (2007-09), Buffalo (2009) and Pittsburgh (2010-11) before joining the Bears in 2012, he’s started in 35 of 70 games played. Scott played in 12 games for the Bears last season with seven starts.

Scott missed the majority of training camp and the preseason with knee issues, which led to him undergoing a minor procedure. Scott returned to practice earlier in the week and was cleared for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
