LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Dealing with a few injuries on their offensive line, the Bears have reportedly made a move to shore up their depth ahead of roster cutdown day.

This move also brings a Chicago area native back to his hometown.

During his news conference on Tuesday, Bears head coach Matt Ebeflus confirmed the Bears have acquired offensive lineman & Orland Park native Dan Feeney from the Dolphins. Per Courtney Cronin of ESPN, Miami will receive sixth round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft as compensation.

The teams have yet to confirm the transaction, which happens on the day when teams must cut their roster to 53 players by 3 p.m. central time.

Feeney’s acquisition comes as the Bears are currently dealing with a few injuries on their offensive line, including starting guard Teven Jenkins. Reported to be a leg injury, head coach Matt Eberflus described it as “week-to-week” before the Bears’ final preseason game with the Bills last week.

A former standout at Carl Sandburg High School and a first team All-American at Indiana, Feeney was a third round draft pick of the Chargers in 2017. He spent four years in Los Angeles, then two with the Jets before signing with the Dolphins this offseason.

Feeney gives the Bears some versatility having made 41 starts at left guard during his first three seasons with the Chargers and then all 16 games at center in 2020/ In New York, he played in 33 games with seven starts on the line for the Jets.

The Bears will open the 2023 season against the Packers at Soldier Field on Sunday, September 10 at 3:25 p.m.
