Former Chicago Bears draft pick Dazz Newsome is looking for a new home in the NFL as the season goes on. Newsome was released by the Bears during the preseason, failing to make the 53-man roster in his second year.
Since then, he’s had tryouts with a few teams including Tennessee and New England before signing to the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad last week. But that was a short stay as well.
Newsome was released off the Chiefs practice squad on Thursday, just days after signing:
The #Chiefs have terminated the practice squad contract of WR Dazz Newsome and signed former #Seahawks draft pick Ugo Amadi to the practice squad. Amadi was traded twice this season (SEA to PHI and PHI to TEN). The defensive back spent most of the past two months w/ the #Titans.

The former North Carolina standout was selected in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL draft by the Chicago Bears and was put on the practice squad his first year. He did appear in three games, recording six catches for 75 yards.
He also served as a punt returner for the Chicago Bears in a few games. But here in 2022, Newsome failed to catch the new regime’s eye despite struggles at wide receiver and was let go.
