Bears Sign DT Nate Collins and QB Jordan Palmer to 1-Year Deals

USA TODAY Sports

The Bears re-signed defensive tackle Nate Collins and quarterback Jordan Palmer on Sunday night.

The Bears have another couple of would-be free agents returning. The team announced they have resigned DT Nate Collins and QB Jordan Palmer to one year deals.

Jordan Palmer was the team's third-string quarterback, signed before the fourth preseason game and signed again when Jay Cutler suffered an injury to his groin. He didn't see any game action in 2013.

Nate Collins was the team's third defensive tackle last season, and picked up a start when Henry Melton went down with an ACL tear. Collins tore his own ACL the week after to contribute to the team's woes on the defensive line.

These moves probably don't mean anything in the long term free agency plans for team, and they may well just fulfill the roles they held in the past, but that's two less players the Bears have to worry about on Tuesday, when free agency open season begins.
