Quote:

The Bears on Wednesday signed kicker Chris Blewitt.

Blewitt kicked for four seasons at the University of Pittsburgh from 2013-16, converting 69.6 of his field-goal attempts (55 of 79), including 4 of 8 from 50 yards and beyond, with a long of 56 yards.

Blewitt’s biggest kick at Pittsburgh was a 43-yarder with :06 remaining that lifted the Panthers to a 43-42 win over Clemson in 2016. It was Clemson’s only loss of the season en route to winning the national championship.

Blewitt participated in the Steelers’ rookie minicamp in 2017 on a tryout basis. He is the second kicker the Bears have signed this offseason, joining Tulsa product Redford Jones.

Camp leg, competition for whoever else is trying out. College stats very underwhelming.

Can’t knock creating competition! I’m all for it. Since Gould got franchises tagged, I’ll be happy when I finally see the bears have signed Steven Gostkowski!

The last thing we remember from last season is a double doink miss by Parkay to end the season and they sign a kicker named Blewitt ? I mean at least they have a sense of humor LOL...

College stats mean zero when it comes to nfl kickers. Another leg to try out. I expect 1 or 2 more.

Yeah, I expect them to have like 4 kickers in camp. This dude does have an unfortunate name for a kicker though.

It's arguably the worst name in kicking history. I doubt there's many worse.
