Bears bring back two players
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/10/2014) The Bears announced Sunday night that defensive tackle Nate Collins and quarterback Jordan Palmer will be back with the team in 2014, reports the Chicago Tribune. Both have signed one-year deals.
Collins, 26, played in five games for the Bears last season, credited by team stats with 13 tackles and a sack before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in a Week 5 home loss to the Saints.
Palmer spent training camp with the Bears in 2013, was released before the start of the regular season but then rejoined the club in late-October after starting quarterback Jay Cutler tore a groin muscle. Palmer remained on the roster through season’s end but did not see action in any of the team’s final nine games.
He could be No. 2 behind Cutler this season if Josh McCown leaves as a free agent.
