Tight end Dante Rosario gets one year deal from Chicago Bears

The Bears are locking in some components of their offense before free agency opens. Now, tight end Dante Rosario gets a deal.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears just keep locking in pieces of their offense from last year:

Reports are the deal is worth $1.5 million.

Rosario had just 1 catch for 13 yards in 2013, but graded out as a competent run blocker with an overall positive grade for the year. Hes not likely to turn around at this point and beat out Martellus Bennett for the starting TE job, but has the NFL experience

Rosario wasn't necessarily due to command a lot on the free agency market, so its easy for the Bears to lock him up for good value now. This isn't a move that would preclude them from drafting a tight end if they so choose, or from even kicking the tires if a surprising value pops up in free agency.

Coming up Monday, the franchise deadline. While the Bears seem unlikely to use that this year, you know we'll have the news you need about the Chicago Bears. Sound off below and let us know how you feel about Dante returning to the team?
