SHARE Bears shuffle practice squad, bring back Asiata

Guard Johan Asiata has been signed to the practice squad for the third time as the Bears re-shuffled the practice squad today.

Asiata returns and cornerback Woodny Turenne departs, not a surprise consider the Bears signed cornerback DeAngelo Smith to the practice squad on Tuesday.

General manager Jerry Angelo routinely ships guys in and out on the practice squad. Teams are allowed to carry a maximum of eight players on the practice squad, and by using a revolving door for some, the Bears can evaluate more than that number and use them in practice settings.
