Malcolm Bronson signed a two-year deal with the Bears on Thursday after spending the three previous days at Halas Hall as part of a tryout.
The 5-11, 192-pounder was first signed by the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He spent his season in the pros on the Kansas City practice squad.
At McNeese State, he intercepted 10 passes in 40 games, recording 230 tackles and recovering two fumbles.
He was one of six players invited to try out during the Bears’ voluntary practice session this week at Halas Hall.
