Bears' Ben Braunecker: Sees four offensive snaps in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker wasn't targeted during the 2017 season, as he primarily played on special teams while seeing just four offensive snaps in eight games played.

Braunecker will be an exclusive-rights free agent, but if the Bears retain him, he'll likely struggle to see consistent playing time at tight end with Adam Shaheen and Dion Sims serving as the top two tight ends. He's posted just 41 receiving yards over 21 career contests.

Bears' Ben Braunecker: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker was promoted to the Bears' active roster from their practice squad Tuesday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Braunecker joins the Bears following the news of Zach Miller being done for the season following emergency leg surgery. Braunecker was originally waived by the Bears at the start of the regular season and will now serve as a depth option at tight end for the final stretch.

Ben Braunecker: Clears waivers, joins practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braunecker signed with the Bears' practice squad Monday after clearing waivers, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Braunecker played 13 games last season, making four catches for 41 yards. With just one reception this preseason, it comes as no surprise that the Bears were alright letting Braunecker go since veterans Zach Miller and Dion Sims along with 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen filling their tight end corps.
