The Chicago Bears re-signed TE Rob Housler to a one year deal

Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears have announced that they are bringing tight end Rob Housler back on a one year deal.

Housler was a late addition to the team last year after they put starting tight end Martellus Bennett on injured reserve. The Bears are Housler's third team through five years after originally being a third round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in the 2011 NFL Draft. He was in Arizona until 2014, then with the Cleveland Browns in 2015 before being waived/injured in November.

He played the final 4 games of the season last year for the Bears, making 3 catches for 27 yards. For the Bears he played in 35 offensive snaps and another 41 on special teams.

His career numbers are 109 catches for 1,166 yards with one touchdown. He has appeared in 65 games with 27 starts in his career.

Housler is more of a move tight end like Zach Miller, so the Bears are probably still in the market for one that can run block. Back at his NFL Combine, Housler ran a 4.55 forty and was one of the more athletic players at his position.

What are your thoughts on Housler being back with the Chicago Bears?
