Bears signed CB Kyle Fuller to a four-year, $56 million contract.

They matched Green Bay's offer sheet. Fuller will make $18 million guaranteed, $5 million more than he would have made under the transition tag. This was fully expected from Chicago, who would have got no compensation if they let Fuller sign with the Packers. Fuller is now one of the highest paid corners in the league at $14 million annually. He's signed through his age-30 season.

Packers signed CB Kyle Fuller to a multi-year offer sheet.

Green Bay is trying to poach Fuller from division-rival Chicago, which presently has Fuller's rights via the transition tag. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears "have planned to match any offer" Fuller gets. If the Packers structure Fuller's deal to make it difficult for the Bears to match, however, Chicago would receive zero compensation, and wouldn't even be eligible for a compensatory pick in 2019. The Bears have five days to match the Packers' offer.

Bears re-signed TE Daniel Brown.

Brown was non-tendered as a restricted free agent and is coming back on a cheaper deal. He caught 13 balls for 129 scoreless yards last season and will compete for one of the final jobs at tight end this summer.
Mar 16 - 12:39 PM

Bears signed QB Tyler Bray, formerly of the Chiefs.

Along with Chase Daniel, Bray is another ex-Chief who has experience in new coach Matt Nagy's offense and can help sophomore Mitch Trubisky.
Mar 16 - 9:15 AM

Bears re-signed P Pat O'Donnell to a one-year contract.

O'Donnell logged a whopping 47.0-yard gross average as the Bears' punter last season, but his net (39.7) wasn't good enough, and that's why he was unable to land a multi-year deal. O'Donnell was the Bears' sixth-round pick in 2014.
Mar 15 - 7:36 PM

Bears signed DE Aaron Lynch, formerly of the 49ers, to a one-year contract.

The former fifth-rounder has been lightly used over the past two seasons, tallying 2.5 sacks in 14 games. Still only 25, Lynch has some theoretical upside but has struggled with conditioning issues. He won't be guaranteed to crack the 53-man roster in Chicago, though reuniting with ex-49ers DC Vic Fangio could be the boost he needs.

Sam Acho - LB - Bears

Bears re-signed OLB Sam Acho to a two-year contract.

Acho, 29, quietly played 639 snaps for the Bears' injury-riddled defense last season, recording three sacks, including 2.5 over the final three games. Chicago likely doesn't want him starting, but he's a decent rotational piece.
Mar 14 - 9:27 AM

Bears signed QB Chase Daniel, formerly of the Saints, to a two-year, $10 million contract.

He knows new coach Matt Nagy's offense from their time together in Kansas City and will help teach it to sophomore Mitch Trubisky. It's not a bad gig for $5 million annually. Daniel, 31, hasn't started a game since 2014.
Mar 14 - 9:11 AM

Bears re-signed RCB Prince Amukamara.

A solid-not-spectacular starter for last year's Bears, Amukamara is a sticky cover guy with the ability to excel in both man and zone. He wound up facing a high number of No. 1 wideouts last year and held up well. Amukamara's downfall is his lack of ball skills and penchant for injuries; he's lasted 16 games once in seven NFL seasons and has just one interception over the past three years. Nevertheless, his re-signing gives the Bears a chance to keep their underrated secondary intact with Kyle Fuller on the transition tag, slot CB Bryce Callahan tendered, and Eddie Jackson and Adrian Amos returning at safety.
Mar 13 - 8:50 PM

Bears agreed to terms with WR Taylor Gabriel, formerly of the Falcons, on a four-year, $26 million contract.

The deal includes $14 million guaranteed. Gabriel broke the news himself via friend and former NFL receiver Andrew Hawkins. A critical part of the Falcons' explosive 2016 attack, Gabriel took a step back along with the rest of the offense last season, but is still only 27. He's a big play waiting to happen, and a nice piece for a receiver corps that's being rebuilt from scratch. New coach Matt Nagy has experience scheming for similar talents.
Mar 13 - 4:22 PM

The Star Tribune's Ben Goessling reports the Vikings are interested in Bears restricted free agent CB Bryce Callahan.

Chicago only placed an original-round tender on Callahan, meaning they will not be owed any compensation if they decline to match an offer sheet. It was an odd decision for a player who was always likely to draw interest -- it would have only cost the Bears $1 million more to give him a second-round tender. Chicago might end up having to match an offer sheet to retain Callahan.
Mar 13 - 12:59 PM

Bears signed K Cody Parkey, formerly of the Dolphins.

It's a much-needed upgrade for the Bears, who struggled with inconsistency at kicker last year. Parkey is coming off a career year in Miami that saw him convert 91.3 percent of his attempts with a long of 54 yards. Undrafted out of Auburn in 2014, this will be Parkey's fourth team in as many years.
Mar 13 - 12:29 PM

Bears signed TE Trey Burton, formerly of the Eagles, to a four-year, $32 million contract.

This move almost certainly means the Bears plan to cut Dion Sims, who they just signed to a "three-year, 18 million" contract last offseason. Chicago will hope Burton fares better, and he has a good shot under new coach Matt Nagy, who heavily utilized tight ends during his time with the Chiefs. That should mean good fantasy things for Burton, but he might have to compete with 2017 second-rounder Adam Shaheen for targets. In addition to Burton, the Bears added Allen Robinson to their talent-bare pass-catching corps on Tuesday.
Mar 13 - 11:22 AM

Bears signed WR Allen Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, to a three-year, $42 million contract.

The deal reportedly includes $25 million in guarantees. With one of the weakest receiver corps in the league, the Bears were always expected to make a splash in free agency, and Robinson, who is still just 24 and expected to be fully healthy for the offseason, is arguably the cream of the crop. Robinson suffered a torn ACL in 2017 but is only two seasons removed from a "down" year in which he led the Jaguars across the board with a 73-883-6 line. He steps into immediate opportunity with the Bears, who have 225 targets and nearly 2,000 air yards available from last season's production and a quality offensive mind running the show in new coach Matt Nagy.
Mar 13 - 2:28 AM

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs reports free agent Cody Parkey is the Bears' "top target" at kicker.

The Bears cycled through multiple kickers last season, including Mike Nugent, Connor Barth, and Cairo Santos. They'd like to stabilize the position with Parkey. Parkey went 21-of-23 on field goals for Miami last season.
