Bears claimed DE David Bass off waivers from the Raiders.

Bass was outplayed by UDFA Ryan Richardson during Oakland's preseason, but he was a dominant small-schooler who looked like a strong developmental prospect during pre-draft all-star games. He'll be a deep reserve in Chicago.

Raiders waived DE David Bass.

A seventh-round pick, Bass was thought to be in good position to earn a roster spot. As it is, he's likely ticketed for the practice squad. Coming out of small-school Missouri Western State, Bass is facing a daunting transition.

Raiders signed seventh-round DE David Bass to a four-year contract.

Bass has a ton of experience -- 50 starts at Missouri Western -- so his biggest challenge will be getting acclimated to the NFL competition level. On such a weak Raiders roster, he'll have a chance to stick.

Raiders selected Missouri Western State DE David Bass with the No. 233 overall pick.

Bass (6-foot-3 7/8, 262) started a record 50 games for the Griffons and left MWSU as the school's all-time leader in both sacks (40.5) and tackles for loss (56). A squatty, long-armed (33 1/2") pass rusher, Bass was an East-West Shrine standout before running a 4.84 at the Combine with a 1.67 ten-yard split. Bass faces a large jump in competition and lacks truly explosive edge-rusher tools, but he's good value here for a Raiders team in desperate need of sack production. He'll have a solid chance to make the 53.
