Waiver Wire: The Bears Should Bring Back Veteran Alex Brown

The Bears need some depth at defensive end. Second-year end out of Northwestern Corey Wootton was supposed to take the next step this season in the defensive rotation, but he could be out for some time with a bad knee.
Wootton seemed optimistic about returning for the start of the season on Sept. 11. ”It’s going well,” Wootton said Tuesday. “I’ve just been strengthening (the knee), you know the strength isn’t too far away from normal. I started jogging on the treadmill, so I’m hoping to maybe be back in there for the first game, hopefully.”
Former defensive end Alex Brown who spent his first eight seasons with the Bears from 2002-2010, was released by the New Orleans Saints today.
So, would the Bears even consider bringing Alex Brown back? With Julius Peppers and Israel Idonije set in stone as the starters on the defensive line there isn’t much depth behind them.
