Solid move by the Bears to get more depth on the offensive line.
The Chicago Bears have claimed former Raiders offensive lineman Alex Leatherwood on Wednesday afternoon. The team is now on the hook for the rest of his rookie salary.

He is a former first-round 2021 draft pick out of Alabama.
According to reports, the Bears also claimed five other players with defensive tackle Armani Watts, defensive back Josh Blackwell, defensive end Kingsley Johnathan, linebacker Sterling Weatherford, and tight end Trevin Wesco.
The Bears claimed the most players in the NFL today.
