Aug. 16 (UPI) -- The Chicago Bears have signed long snapper Tanner Carew.
Chicago waived linebacker Andrew Trumbetti with an injury designation in a corresponding transaction. The Bears announced the moves on Thursday.
"I'm very excited to announce I have signed with the Chicago Bears," Carew tweeted Thursday. "Let's get it!"
Carew played for four seasons at the University of Oregon. He ran a 5-second 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine.
Trumbetti had 90 tackles, 12.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, an interception for a touchdown and a pass defensed in four seasons at Notre Dame.
The Bears have Patrick Scales listed as their starting long snapper on their unofficial depth chart. Chicago battles the Denver Broncos in a preseason game at 9:05 p.m. Saturday in Denver.
