Bears sign wide receiver Titus Davis, waive Levonte Whitfield

The Bears' receiving core makeover continued Sunday as they signed wideout Titus Davis.

Davis, the older brother of this year's fifth overall pick Corey Davis, has played on three practice squads over the past two seasons in the NFL but is very familiar with Chicago. 

The 24-year-old starred at Wheaton-Warrenville South, where he claimed an IHSA Class 7A State Championship crown in 2010. Davis then went on to break several of NFL-star Antonio Brown's records at Central Michigan. Over four years with the Chippewas, Davis caught 204 passes for 3,700 yards and 37 scores.

Despite an illustrious college career, Davis went undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft. He competed in Bears rookie minicamp as a tryout candidate and will now join Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton and Rueben Randle as fresh faces out wide. 

In a corresponding move, the Bears waived Levonte Whitfield. The Florida State product went undrafted in last month's draft.

Bears offer custom wallpapers for video calls, Allen Robinson wants one too

To help fans get excited for football season (fingers crossed it will start on time, but who knows) the Bears offered to make custom wallpapers for fans who tweet their last name and preferred number at the Bears’ main Twitter account. 

Perfect for showing off your Chicago spirit and spicing up online classes or conference calls! Not only did fans get a kick out of seeing their name on a digital jersey, Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson got in on the fun too. 

Despite Robinson probably owning many, many things (both digital and physical) with his name and number on them, Bears’ Twitter was happy to oblige. 

This led many fans online to continue calling for his contract extension, but right now the Bears and Robinson seem to be focusing on the present and trying to have some light-hearted fun during these uncertain times.
