It was a quiet day for the Chicago Bears in free agency yesterday with zero new signings, however they did lose Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Cornelius Lucas. The Bears are looking good so far in the compensation draft pick department for 2021 with 4, but there’s still a long way to go in free agency.

The Bears have obvious holes at right guard, safety, and outside linebacker, so keep an eye on those positions today.

The full list of transactions involving the Bears can be found below the horizontal line, and for the latest buzz just keep reading as we’ll be updating this tracker as news breaks and rumors swirl...

Stay up to date with our weekend tracker right here.

7:42 PM: The Bears are re-signing OLB Isaiah Irving to a one year deal. (link)

5:12 PM: Not sure how I missed this one yesterday, but apparently Brad Biggs reported the Bears were going to re-sign long snapper Patrick Scales to a one-year deal. I feel as though I’ve failed the tracker by missing the news...

1:51 PM: I missed this one earlier, but safety Karl Joseph, who was linked to the Bears, signed with the Browns. (link)

12:11 PM: Per Ian Rapoport, the Steelers signed tight end Eric Ebron to a 2-year, $12 million deal. Just a reminder, the Bears gave tight end Jimmy Graham 2-years at $16 million.

11:48 AM: The Saints have re-signed offensive lineman Andrus Peat for 5-years, $57.5 million. Many thought he would be a Bears target. (link)

10:07 AM: Bears resign Deon Bush per Adam Schefter. (link)

March 19: While the rumors were nonexistent on Thursday, there was some social media chatter about Tony Jefferson and his obvious match with the Bears. Jefferson is a 28-year old safety that has played with the Ravens the last three years.
