Your Newest Bear: Jimmy Kennedy

With all the injuries at defensive tackle that have resulted in Antonio Garay and Anthony Adams being placed on IR, and now the latest injury to Darwin Walker‘s elbow, you kinda figured the Bears would have to sign somebody to play this weekend.

They have, and it’s former Penn State Nittany Lion, and St. Louis Rams first round pick Jimmy Kennedy.

The Bears signed 6-foot-4-inch defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy to the active roster Tuesday to help fill a void with season-ending injuries to Anthony Adams and Antonio Garay.

Kennedy, who played under Lovie Smith with St. Louis Rams, was a first-round pick of the Rams in 2003 and former teammate of Adams’ at Penn State. He was traded from the Rams to the Denver Broncos before this season, then released by the Broncos in September.

Great! Lovie went and signed himself another former player who had a modicum of success under him! That worked out so well with Adam Archuleta!

This team is so fucked.
