Bears sign Deon Bush to a one-year deal

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chicago Bears are bringing back safety Deon Bush on a one-year contract worth $1.4 million.

This will be the fifth year in Chicago for the former fourth-round pick out of Miami, and he’s started 6 games and appeared in 54 total during that time. While he played a career low 58 snaps on defense in 2019, he played a career high 263 snaps on special teams.

The coaches praised his development last offseason, but with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix signed and healthy all year, Bush was relegated to backup.

But with Clinton-Dix headed to Dallas, Bush is slotted in as a starter for now. However, since he’s only the third safety currently under contract for Chicago — along with Eddie Jackson and Kentrell Brice — I would expect some more movement at the position soon.

Would you guys be content if Bush was the starter in 2020 alongside Jackson?
