SHARE Bears agree to terms with tight end Spaeth

The Bears have agreed to terms with former Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth, according to NFL Network’s Mike Lombardi, which is the strongest indication yet that Greg Olsen’s days in Chicago are numbered.

Spaeth is primarily a blocking tight end who has only 36 receptions during his four-year career. The former University of Minnesota standout won the John Mackey Award in 2006 as the nation’s best tight end before being the Steelers third-round pick in 2007.
