Bears add P Pakulak

The Bears must have liked what they saw in punter Glenn Pakulak the first time they had him in because hes back.

The club signed him to a reserve/future contract on Tuesday.

Pakulak was in a group of a half-dozen punters that were worked out when the team signed Dirk Johnson as a temporary replacement for Brad Maynard on Sept. 16. Maynard had a balky groin, and the team chose Johnson while also taking a look at Pakulak, Scott Player and Danny Baugher.

Pakulak, a Kentucky product, has spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans. He has never appeared in a regular-season game. Pakulak punted for Amsterdam the last two seasons in NFL Europe.
