The Chicago Bears have signed former Steelers defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson to their practice squad, the team announced on Wednesday.
Anderson, a fourth-year pro out of Bucknell, signed as a street free agent with the Steelers on April 12 after previously spending time with the Bears and Minnesota Vikings.
He was released in the team’s first set of cuts on Aug. 17. Anderson had one tackle, one sack, one pressure and one forced fumble in two preseason games with the Steelers.
Anderson joined the Bears as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He spent the first season on the practice squad, and made the active roster in 2019, playing in six games and recording four tackles, one tackle for loss and a sack.
Cut after training camp in 2020 by the Bears, Anderson signed to the Vikings’ practice squad and was elevated to the active roster for one game. He played 10 snaps against Detroit on Nov. 8 without recording a statistic.
