The league is still working out some details in how the opt outs will work, so the deadline has been pushed back to later this week.
Lucas was signed to help bolster special teams and to compete for a reserve safety spot after playing the 2019 season with the Kansas City Chiefs. Most of his 4 year career has been spent in the third phase, although he did pick up 4 starts in the Chiefs’ secondary in 2018.
Boyd started his career in K.C. where he was a UDFA pickup in 2019, but after he was cut he had a brief stop with the Bengals before landing on the Bears practice squad a year ago.
With Jenkins and Saubert off the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the Bears no longer have anyone with that designation. The new list was created this year for anyone that has tested positive or come into contract with someone that has tested positive.
