Chicago Bears re-sign safety Craig Steltz and sign safety Danny McCray

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

After missing out on the top free agent safeties on the market, the Chicago Bears must think they can find some magic by adding a plethora of average players to the position. Two more were added to the mix today, one familiar face and one new fella.

The Chicago Bears have added two more players today.

We should all be familiar with Craig Steltz, the heady reserve in-the-box strong safety, special teamer, that can fill in on the defense in a pinch, but we wouldn't want him starting for any length of time.

The other new safety is former Dallas Cowboys Danny McCray, who played mostly special teams for Dallas in his four years as a pro. His most extensive action on defense came in 2012 when he started 10 games. McCray has worked with current Bears special teams coach Joe DeCamillas when he held the same job with the Cowboys, so he has that going for him.

Steltz and McCray will be added to the already under contract Chris Conte, and the newly signed M.D. Jennings and Ryan Mundy. Sean Cattouse is another safety that was brought in on a reserve / future contract and he will be competing in camp as well.

Any of these safeties get you all giddy inside?

One more Bears free agency nugget, the release of WR Earl Bennett was made official.
