Bears sign veteran safety Ryan Mundy

The Chicago Bears upgraded the safety position today with the acquisition of former New York Giants defensive back Ryan Mundy, a five-year veteran.

The Chicago Bears continue to make moves in free agency to upgrade the defense. The team has signed former New York Giants safety Ryan Mundy to a two-year contract.

Mundy is a former sixth round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2008 NFL Draft. He played four years in Pittsburgh, starting five games, and was used primarily as the team's extra safety on passing downs. He signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants last offseason and started nine games in the Big Apple, accumulating 77 total tackles, 1.0 sack, two pass breakups and an interception, which he returned 91 yards.

Mundy has two career interceptions and has experience at free safety and strong safety in both 3-4 and 4-3 systems.
