Former Eagles TE Trey Burton to sign with the Bears

Trey Burton scores a touchdown in the third quarter against the Bears at Soldier Field

Chicago will hope Burton fares better, and he has a good shot under new coach Matt Nagy, who heavily utilized tight ends during his time with the Chiefs.

On the eve of the official opening of free agency, the Bears reportedly reached an agreement on a four-year, $32 million deal with former Eagles tight end Trey Burton.

NFL Network's duo of Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo have the details...

Burton, 26, was signed by the Eagles as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2014. In 2016, he caught 37 passes for 327 yards and 1 touchdown. He has 63 catches for 629 yards and six touchdowns over four seasons with Philadelphia.

Following the first Super Bowl win in franchise history, the Philadelphia Eagles were expected to undergo a few changes to the roster given their salary cap situation.

Mr Hammond said he thought the economy may be on the "beginning of a turn in the trajectory of productivity performance". He said: "Our economy will remain and open and outward-looking, confident to compete with the best in the world".

It's obvious the Bears value Burton's versatility, which he first put on display during his career at Florida.

The Bears are adding weapons for young quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

Due largely to the presence of veteran tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek, Burton was only on the field for 27 percent of the offensive snaps last season, but he made the most of his opportunities, hauling in 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns.

The dual tight end thing is interesting: Shaheen was a pretty high draft pick for Chicago a year ago and considered a "Baby Gronk" type.
