2014 NFL Free Agency: Chicago Bears re-sign Eben Britton

The Chicago Bears have had a busy offseason.

They may have released defensive end Julius Peppers and lost him to the rival Green Bay Packers and let another former Pro Bowl defensive lineman, Henry Melton, sign with the Dallas Cowboys, but they’ve replaced their production with former Minnesota Vikings’ defensive end Jared Allen and former Oakland Raiders’ pass rusher LaMarr Houston.

They also restructured quarterback Jay Cutler’s mega-deal and re-signed cornerback Charles Tillman.

On Thursday, the Bears re-signed another one of their own to help provide depth along their offensive line.

According to The Chicago Tribune, the Bears have re-signed offensive tackle Eben Britton to a one-year deal.

“Eben is a guy that we have great confidence in because he can do a lot of different things, obviously,” head coach Marc Trestman told the Tribune. “He can play a lot of different positions. He knows all the positions so his value is he can do a lot of different things and do them sufficiently to allow us to win a game and that is how we look at him. He is very good in the meeting room. He’s a very good teammate and a guy in the locker room and when he is in a game we trust him he will do his job.”

Britton joined the Bears prior to last season after four years with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
