The Bears announced today that they've reached a two-year extension with fullback Tony Fiammetta.

Fiammetta was signed in the offseason to provide some solid run-blocking to go with a decent pair of hands out of the backfield. In 2013, he hasn't recorded a rushing attempt, but has four receptions for 57 yards, including a long gain of 30.

This move comes on the heels of Robbie Gould's four-year extension announced yesterday. In his press conference yesterday, Phil Emery pointed out how the team had a little cap room remaining in 2013 that they would like to use. It would not surprise that some of the money in these extensions was being buried in the 2013 cap room that the team has.

Tomorrow's the last day for a player signing to count against the cap in 2013. Hence, the timing of these extensions.
