Roy Robertson-Harris is officially back.

The Bears defensive lineman signed his contract tender Wednesday, locking him into a one-year, $3.3 million deal. The move was considered a certainty after sources said last month that the Bears attached a second-round tender to the restricted free agent.

The tender meant any team wanting to sign Robertson-Harris would have had to give the Bears a second-round draft pick as compensation.

Last year, Robertson-Harris posted 212 sacks and 30 tackles in 15 games, with seven starts. He has 712 sacks and 65 tackles in three years.
