In addition to Tyson Bagent, the Bears have another backup quarterback available.

They signed veteran lineman Matt Pryor as a depth player and signed quarterback Brett Rypien.

Rypien, the nephew of former Washington quarterback Mark Rypien, spent his four-year NFL career with the Broncos and Rams, starting four games and participating in ten. But he spent November 10 through December 4 of last season with the Seahawks and their practice squad, so he is somewhat acquainted with Shane Waldron’s scheme. He was cut from the Seahawks practice squad on December 5 and signed by the Jets, where he played out the previous season.

With nine interceptions, 950 yards, four touchdowns, and a passing rating of 59.0, Rypien is 98 of 168.

In 2019, Rypien was a Broncos undrafted rookie; however, in 2023, he was granted free agency.

In his 75 games played, Pryor, 29, has started 24 of them. At 332 pounds and 6 feet 7 inches, he last played for the Colts in 2022. In Matt Ebeflus’ final season with the Colts (2021), he was a member of the team and started five games. He reported nine games at tackle in 2022.

The most games Pryor started in 2020 was ten.

Pryor was a member of the 49ers last year. As a sixth-round selection out of TCU in 2019, he began his career with the Eagles.

He’ll compete with Larrry Borom, the backup tackle, as he has experience playing guard as well.
