Rose won't sign a contract with the Bears after working out for the team Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Rose, Younghoe Koo and Caleb Sturgis all participated in the tryout, but the Bears are opting to stick with Christ Blewitt and Redford Jones as their kickers for now. Rose went 11-for-14 on field-goal attempts over 10 games between the Chargers and Redskins in 2017 but didn't see any NFL action last season.
Rose will try out with the Bears on Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Rose hasn't played in the NFL since 2017 when he spent two games with the Chargers and eight with the Redskins. Between the two organizations, he converted 11 of 14 field goals with a long of 55 yards. The Bears don't have an experienced kicker on their roster, but Rose will have competition in his tryout from Younghoe Koo.
Rose was waived by the Chargers on Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports. Rose's release by the Chargers comes less than a week after he was signed to help with kickoffs in the divisional round. He was on the field for three kickoffs and had no potential fantasy value while Michael Badgley was handling field goals. Rose will set his sights on making a roster in 2019 after failing to latch on with a team during the 2018 regular season.
Rose signed with the Chargers on Thursday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports. The Chargers are bringing back their kickoff specialist from 2017 in advance of Sunday's game against the Patriots, who have a dangerous return man in Cordarrelle Patterson. Rose kicked touchbacks on eight of his nine kickoffs in 2017, per Fortier.
Rose was cut by the Texans on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Rose struggled mightily during the preseason, missing kicks in each game he appeared in for the Texans. Having kicked for the Redskins and Chargers in 2017, the 24-year-old has made 11 of 14 field-goal attempts and five of six extra-point kicks in his NFL career. Rose will become an unrestricted free agent if he isn't claimed off waivers by another team.
