The Chicago Bears have re-signed three players at the start of free agency: CB Tracy Porter, RB Jacquizz Rodgers and OL Nick Becton.
Porter played in 14 games for the Bears last season, with 13 starts. He led the team with 12 pass breakups and was the best coverage player on the roster for most of the year. Porter signed a three-year deal worth $16.5 million.
Rodgers served as Chicago's third running back last year before breaking his arm in Week 5. The 26-year-old is a quality special teams player.
In his first season with the Bears in 2015, Rodgers carried the ball 14 times for 41 yards (2.9 ypc) and grabbed one reception for 10 yards. He added four special teams tackles, a 15-yard kickoff return and recovered an opponent’s muffed punt.
Becton, who is 26-years-old, played in five games for the Bears last season but never saw the field. The former undrafted free agent out of Virginia is entering his fourth NFL season.
