SHARE UPDATED: Booker agrees to two-year deal with Bears

Three days after losing Bernard Berrian to the Minnesota Vikings, the Bears have brought back a receiver they have always called their own.

Marty Booker agreed to a two-year contract Tuesday night. Booker, who holds the franchise record with 100 receptions from 2001, had interest from the New England Patriots into Tuesday that could have been affected when the team re-signed Jabar Gaffney.

Even after trading Booker with a third-round pick to the Dolphins in 2004, general manager Jerry Angelo would refer to him as “our Marty Booker,” a sign of the regard he held him in.

Now, he is theirs again.
