Chicago Bears trade for Houston Texans tight end Khari Lee

Published Add your comment

The Chicago Bears have had a far from ideal buildup to the 2015 NFL season.


Receiver Woes

The Bears traded star wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets and decided to find his replacement in the draft, bringing in highly touted wideout Kevin White from West Virginia who got injured almost immediately, with star receiver Alshon Jeffery also struggling with injury.

So now the Bears have gone out and done something about their depleted receiving corps, by trading for a brand new tight end.

Sixth Rounder

Today, the Bears decided to acquire rookie tight end Khari Lee from the Houston Texans, parting ways with a sixth round draft pick to get their man.

Lee, an undrafted rookie from Bowie State, made five catches for 71 yards in Houston’s three preseason games but is considered an in-line blocker.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder caught 34 passes for 389 yards and one touchdown last season and needs to make the jump from a low level of college ball.

The Bears traded for Lee because they didn’t want to take the chance they would miss out on him via the waiver claim system. His addition could mean that veteran Bear Pascoe will be challenged to make the 53-man roster.

Bennett leads the Bears with 11 receptions in preseason. Dante Rosario has two catches and no other tight end has made a reception.
