Wide receiver Marty Booker mulled the possibility of signing with the New England Patriots, but said Thursday on a conference call that the opportunity to be a No. 1 receiver with the Bears helped him make his decision.
Booker agreed to a $3.5 million, two-year contract Tuesday night.
“I just figured it would be a better opportunity for me to come to Chicago and the opportunity prsented itself. I had to jump on it,” Booker said.
“Going anywhere else I would have had to take that role of being a No. 2 or No. 3 guy and I look at this coming into Chicago I have that opportunity to get that No. 1 job and be the No. 1 guy. The opportunity and the option here was just better for me and then plus Chicago, this is where it all started. I still feel I have some unfinishd business up there.”
