Dylan Cole

Bears sign former Titans LB Dylan Cole

The Chicago Bears aren’t finished poaching the Tennessee Titans roster, apparently. After signing guard Nate Davis and defensive lineman DeMarcus Walker in free agency, GM Ryan Poles has inked linebacker Dylan Cole, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Cole, 28, started a career-high eight games in 2022, totaling 64 tackles and four tackles for loss. The former Missouri State standout entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie with the Houston Texans in 2017. After three injury-riddled seasons, Cole was signed to the Titans practice squad in 2021 and became a productive special teams player over the last two years.

Dylan Cole registered an elite 90.5 special teams grade from Pro Football Focus in 2021. He followed it up with another fantastic 83.3 grade in 2022.

Cole should be a big part of the Chicago Bears’ special teams unit while serving as a depth linebacker in 2023.
