The Chicago Bears just couldn't wait for Trumaine McBride to recover from his sprained knee, so the ballclub waived/injured him and replaced him with DeAngelo Smith on the active roster. Take a listen to what Smith said to Bear Report before practice Wednesday in this exclusive audio feature.

John Crist: How much contact did you have with the Bears during the draft process? I know you ended up going to the Cowboys, but combine, pre-draft workouts – were the Bears a team on your radar coming into draft weekend?

DeAngelo Smith: Yeah, I think they were because I had a workout with them. I figure if somebody's coming in to work you out, they are interested in you. So they came in and worked me out, and I guess I've been on their radar since then.

Be sure to listen to the rest of JC's interview with cornerback DeAngelo Smith, an exclusive for Bear Report subscribers ...
