The Chicago Bears have had an eventful offseason.
Although they cut ties with defensive end Julius Peppers and he signed with the rival Green Bay Packers and they lost defensive tackle Henry Melton to the Dallas Cowboys, the Bears agreed to deals with former Oakland Raiders’ defensive end LaMarr Houston and former Minnesota Vikings’ star Jared Allen.
Although the news of the day out of Chicago was that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Josh Freeman visited the Bears on Monday.
According to Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune, former New England Patriots’ tight end Matthew Mulligan was in Chicago for a visit on Monday.

Mulligan made two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in 15 games last season.
