According to reports, the Bears have signed defensive back Marqui Christian:
Per source, DB Marqui Christian signed w/ the #Bears. Christian could challenge to start at safety. Very versatile player that saw time at nickel and safety for the Rams. Christian is also a standout special teams player.— TURRON DAVENPORT (@TDavenport_NFL) August 11, 2020
Christian's a four-year veteran who's spent his entire career with the LA Rams. Terms of the deal haven't been disclosed yet.
Christian's played 55 games in his NFL career, with his lone start coming last season. More of a special teams guy, Christian played almost 80% of the Rams' snaps there last season. He'll more than likely factor into the Bears' safety battle, where Deon Bush and Tashaun Gipson were slated to take equal snaps with the starters. If he makes the team, he'll be suspended for the first two games of the season.
Former Rams DB Marqui Christian, who agreed to a deal with the Jets in free agency that eventually fell through, has been suspended for the first two weeks of the regular season, per source.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) June 18, 2020
