Bears Add Another Strong Safety

Image for Bears Add Another Strong Safety

The Chicago Bears aren’t done in free agency yet. The Bears agreed to terms with strong safety Jordan Lucas for a one-year deal worth $1 million.

The 26-year-old safety spent two seasons in Miami with the Dolphins and then two more in Kansas City winning a Super Bowl with the Chiefs. Lucas struggled to find playing time since he competed with Tyrann Mathieu for the starting job.

Lucas is being brought in to likely compete with the Bears’ other strong safety Deon Bush for the starting strong safety position this season. The Bears’ lost their other starting safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to free agency.

Expect the Bears to also address the strong safety position in the draft. The Bears also might target another safety in free agency. This could just be a special teams move for all we know.
