The Bears signed another one of their own Monday, agreeing to a one-year deal with veteran tight end Rob Housler.

He signed with the Bears in December when the team put Martellus Bennett on Injured Reserve, and caught three passes for 27 yards.

He will provide the team with depth at a position in flux. Having grown dissatisfied with Martellus Bennett, the Bears have been looking to trade their starting tight end. Zach Miller, coming off a career year with the Bears, is a free agent and met with the Rams on Sunday.
