The Chicago Bears have been sitting on 88 active players on their offseason roster after waiving Emanuel Hall (WR) and Elliott Fry (K), but earlier today they added free agent running back Josh Caldwell (5’11”, 220) to fill one spot.

The 23-year old Caldwell, an undrafted free agent from Northwest Missouri State, was just released by the Kansas City Chiefs last week. In K.C.’s preseason opener he rushed 4 times for 59 yards and a touchdown, including this 47 yard gem.

At his pro day back in March, he ran a 4.7 forty, went 4.45 on the 20-yard shuttle, and did 18 reps on the bench, and a year ago he was Honorable Mention All-MIAA while rushing for 830 yards on 139 carries (5.97 ypc) and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 13 passes for 55 yards and two touchdowns.

The Chiefs were high on him, but he just got caught up in a numbers crunch at the position. “The guy can play,” Chiefs running back coach Deland McCullough said last week, and now with the Bears expected to continue resting Mike Davis, David Montgomery, and Tarik Cohen in the final two preseason games, Caldwell will have plenty of chances to shine.
