The Bears and Bolden agreed to a contract Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The defections from head coach John Fox's previous employer, the Broncos, continue, as Bolden is the fourth such player to move from Denver to Chicago this offseason. In four seasons in the Mile-High City, Bolden served primarily on special teams, racking up 27 tackles in that domain while returning at least 13 kickoffs on three occasions. Expect him to serve in a similar capacity with the Bears.
Goldman, who suffered a sprained right ankle during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The rookie defensive tackle and former second-round pick notched 4.5 sacks in 15 games throughout the season before the severely sprained ankle suffered in Week 16 forced the Bears to shut him down for the year. With Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) also headed to IR, the team signed defensive linemen Terry Williams and Greg Scruggs on Wednesday.
McPhee (knee) may not be at full speed for the Bears' April offseason program, but is expected to be fully ready for training camp, the Chicago Tribune reports.
McPhee had five sacks in the Bears first seven games last season before missing two games and missing significant snaps in the last six games he played due to the knee injury. If he can remain healthy in 2016, he should continue to not only pressure the quarterback, but also be an asset against the run.
Rolle (knee) has been placed on IR by the Bears, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Rolle's injury is described as a sprained knee, which suggests that he should be recovered well in advance of the 2016 season. In seven games for the Bears in 2015, Rolle logged 35 tackles. In a corresponding move, OT Tayo Fabuluje was reinstated to the team's active roster.
Wilson's foot injury proves season-ending, and leaves an already beat-up group of Chicago pass catchers even thinner. Wilson heads into his contract year with a modest but efficient total of 28 catches for 464 yards and one touchdown on 51 targets (9.1 YPT).
The Eagles released wide receiver Arrelious Benn with an injury settlement, according to ESPN on Saturday. Benn suffered a concussion in the third week of preseason, but it was a back injury that caused him to land on the injury reserve to start the season before he was officially waived by Philadelphia.
Colvin has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 regular season for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Colvin will remain eligible to participate in offseason and preseason activities, but will be sidelined for four games once the regular season kicks off. With Colvin out, offseason signing Price Amukamara becomes increasingly likely to start opposite Davon House at cornerback to begin this season.
Hurns (sports hernia) expects to start running in approximately one month, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. As for the offseason, he said, "OTAs, I'll definitely be ready. I'll be doing everything I'm supposed to be."
Hurns gutted out injury after injury in his second season en route to 64 catches (on 105 targets) for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games. Missing only one outing due to his residence in the concussion protocol, he nonetheless required sports hernia surgery once the campaign concluded. If he indeed upholds his desired training schedule, he'll be present at the beginning of the Jaguars' offseason program in April.
Marks (torn triceps) will be placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday afternoon, NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reports.
It's been a rough 11 months for Marks, who managed 8.5 sacks and 44 tackles last season, but then suffered a torn ACL in Week 17. He subsequently made just four appearances this season, recording six tackles, three passes defensed and zero sacks. The good news is that he'll be further removed from the ACL injury next season, and the torn triceps should be healed before training camp.
Smith (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
The 2014 fifth-rounder finishes up his 2015 season with a fantasy-friendly 128 tackles, to go along with 2.5 sacks and a pick in 14 games. He's on track to reprise his starting outside linebacker role for the Jags in 2016, an assignment that will make Smith -- whose shoulder issue will not require offseason surgery -- worthy of continued IDP utility next year.
Blackmon was reportedly arrested Saturday in Ardmore, Oklahoma for driving under the influence, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Blackmon, who hasn't played since October of 2013, remains under contract with the Jaguars, but it seems increasingly unlikely that he'll play for the team again. At this time, the 25-year-old wideout remains under an indefinite suspension from the NFL.
