The Chicago Bears have signed tight end Michael Gaines to a one year contract, according to the team site.  Gaines has good size, at 6'4 and 277 lbs.  Per this article from the Tribune last Friday, there may be plans to have Gaines line up at full back as well.  He is a former 7th round draft pick in the 2004 NFL draft.

Thoughts about this signing:

How will Gaines fit into our passing/ running game?

Does this mean more success in short yardage situations?

Will Gaines be yet another option for Jay Cutler out of the back-field?
