Recently the Chicago Bears re-signed veteran safety Deon Bush to a one-year deal worth $1.4 million. You can read more about that here in this link. Considering the size of the investment, Bush will certainly have a chance to compete for a starting job in the Bears’ defense.
It appears some veteran competition has already arrived.
Ian Rapoport of NFL network is reporting that the Bears have signed former Kansas City Chiefs safety Jordan Lucas to a one-year deal of his own. The deal is worth $1 million.

Jordan Lucas, 26, has four starts under his belt from his time with the Chiefs. All four starts came in 2018, and he recorded 1 interception along with 2 passes defended and 32 combined tackles. Jordan was originally drafted into the NFL by the Miami Dolphins in the 6th round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Do not be surprised if more competition at safety is added between now and the upcoming draft. The Bears seek their long-term answer to pair with Eddie Jackson back deep in the secondary.
