The Bears today are working out outside linebacker Rennie Curran, a third-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2010.

Curran, who played at Brookwood High School in Snellville, GA, starred at the University of Georgia. He was one of the top linebackers to come out of the 2010 NFL Draft, but he lasted just one season with the Titans.

In 2009, he was an All-SEC and All-American.

Curran has struggled to make an impact on an NFL roster. But, he clearly enough potential to forego the final year of his eligibility at Georgia.

It’s not clear if the Bears are working out other linebackers. But, the Bears could just be checking out players for special teams purposes.

UPDATE: The Baltimore Sun reports that the Bears are also trying out Clifton Geathers, Spencer Adkins, and four other defenders, citing a league source.
