Bears to sign Super Bowl hero Trey Burton

Bears to sign Super Bowl hero Trey Burton

In 2016, he caught 37 passes for 327 yards and 1 touchdown. Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the second-year, would-be franchise quarterback who is getting a lot of weapons added around him courtesy of GM Ryan Pace.

But Pace wasn't done with his recreation of the 2017 Los Angeles Rams.

Having already secured the services of one of the top free agent wide receivers on the market (Allen Robinson) earlier this morning, the Chicago Bears continued to load up on offense by signing one of the top free agent tight ends, Trey Burton.

Considering that the cash-strapped Eagles have Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz under contract through 2020, it was logical to assume Burton would find a home elsewhere in the league.




Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton, the dependable pass catcher who threw a touchdown to Nick Foles in last month's Super Bowl victory, will sign with the Chicago Bears in free agency, according to several reports. Last season he caught fewer passes - 23 receptions for 238 yards - but hauled in 5 touchdown passes.

Bears fans are through the roof with the way the depth chart looks. This move nearly certainly means the Bears plan to cut Dion Sims, who they just signed to a "three-year, 18 million" contract last offseason.

The dual tight end thing is interesting: Shaheen was a pretty high draft pick for Chicago past year and considered a "Baby Gronk" type.
