The Chicago Bears have already moved on from one of the 13 undrafted free agents signed prior to the start of the team’s three-day rookie mini-camp:
#Bears waive WR Levonte Whitfield and sign WR Titus Davis.

On the way out is wide receiver Levonte Whitfield, a Florida State product who successfully made the leap from high school track-and-field star to productive college football player. Whitfield put together a dazzling highlight reel at FSU showing off his speed in the open field, his size and relative inexperience at wide receiver made him a bit of a project if he wasn’t going to stick as a special teamer.
Waiving Whitfield makes room for Titus Davis, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver who was an All-State performer in high school at Wheaton (Ill.) Warrenville South before playing his college ball at Central Michigan. While on campus, Davis hauled in 204 passes for 3,700 receiving yards, and scored 37 touchdowns from 2011-14. He is the brother of Tennessee Titans first-round pick Corey Davis.
Davis signed a priority free agent deal after the 2015 NFL Draft with the San Diego Chargers, but was released by the team that August. He then signed with the Buffalo Bills in October, but was released six days later. Davis signed with the New York Jets in November, but was let go 10 days later.
In January 2016, Davis signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets, but abruptly retired in August during training camp.
