The Bears added to their offensive line depth on Wednesday as they announced the signing of Eric Kush to a two-year deal.
Kush, who the Bears claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams last August, provided key depth on the offensive line in 2016.
The 27-year-old Kush started a career-high four games and appeared in eight contests for the Bears last season.

Before becoming an HBO Hard Knocks star best known for being the "Man of a thousand tanks" last summer, Kush had bounced around the NFL, appearing in 18 games with the Kansas City Chiefs (2013-14) and Rams (2015). Kush also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2015), Houston Texans (2015) and on the Carolina Panthers practice squad (2015).
Kush was originally a sixth-round selection (170th overall) out of California (PA) by the Chiefs in 2013.
The 2020 NFL Draft is slated to move forward with its virtual event, scheduled for April 23rd-25th. On Thursday, the list of players invited to participate in the draft was revealed, featuring a few shocking omissions but also a fair share of star power.
The list contains big-time quarterback prospects, Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, Jake Fromm, Jacob Eason, and Jordan Love.
One of Burrow's favorite targets, promising tight end Thaddeus Moss was also invited, as was LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson. Perhaps the most notable omission was Penn State wide receiver KJ Hamler. The speedy Hamler had a career-best 947 yards and 8 touchdowns from scrimmage in his second-year with the Nittany Lions.
It has not yet been revealed what the virtual draft process looks like in full but we are one step closer with the release of the invitees.
Every once in a while, a moment comes along that so perfectly captures the essence of a city – its energy, its ethos. These brief moments make up the identity of the city. They're the driving heartbeat that connects a vast network of wonderfully unique cultures while simultaneously creating an ongoing sense of community.
Anyway, here's Chicago's moment:
It's an incredible commitment to one of the city's longest-running bits. Hell hath no fury like a beleaguered Bears fan. Just imagine what sort of Nick Foles jokes are waiting for us down the road!
