Source: Bears signing ex-Texans WR Isaiah Coulter

The Chicago Bears are signing former Texans wide receiver Isaiah Coulter, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.

Coulter was released recently by the Texans and worked out for the Bears.

Coulter was drafted in the fifth round last year out of Rhode Island when former Texans coach Bill O'Brien was the general manager of the AFC South franchise.

A former All-Colonial Athletic Association selection who had 1,039 receiving yards as a junior before declaring for the NFL draft, Coulter was targeted just once in a 26-7 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers and had no catches.

Coulter (6-foot-1, 198 pounds) has run the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds.

As a rookie, he spent part of the season on injured reserve before being designated for return.

He played in one game last season and had no statistics.
