The Bears signed another former John Fox player on Thursday. Former Broncos safety Omar Bolden agreed to a one-year deal after visiting the team.

The 27-year-old figures to add depth to the defensive back corps, but mostly to contribute on special teams. Bolden had 27 special-teams tackles over four seasons with the Broncos. He also returned 13 or more kickoffs in three of the last four seasons.

An Arizona State alum, Bolden played his first three seasons for Fox in Denver. He was a fourth-round selection in 2012.
