In a move that is sure to warm the heart of our own Dane Noble, the Chicago Bears have re-signed S Craig Steltz to a two-year deal, per Vaughn McClure.

Steltz, a 4th round pick in 2008 out of LSU, played all 16 games of 2011 in some capacity, starting in 5 of them. He is a frequent contributor to the Bears' special team strengths. Last year Steltz had two forced fumbles, 32 tackles, and 11 assists.

Per Dickerson and Wright, the deal is 2 years, $1.64 million. Not a bad chunk of change for a guy who doesn't always make it on the field.
