Chicago Bears sign safety M.D. Jennings

Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago Bears added to their defense on day two of free agency by plucking a 16 game starter from the Green Bay Packers.

The Chicago Bears had numerous problems at safety last season, and they've acted quickly in free agency to bring some competition to the position.

After signing Ryan Mundy yesterday, who is more of an in the box strong safety type, they added M.D. Jennings on a one year deal to compete at the free safety spot.

Jennings started all 16 games last season for the Green bay Packers and made 74 total tackles. His first year was spent primarily on special teams, but in 2012 he made 10 starts. He was a restricted free agent that Green Bay decided not to tender after being an undrafted free agent in 2011 from Arkansas State.

You may recall Jennings as the Packer that made a simultaneous catch with Golden Tate when the Pack played the Seattle Seahawks in that infamous Monday Night game.

Jennings is 6' and 187 pounds, and back at his pro day he ran a 4.48 forty yard dash.
