Bears Re-Sign Dante Rosario

The Bears have re-signed tight end Dante Rosario, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Bears GM Phil Emery recently said that he was optimistic about Rosario’s chances of returning to Chicago.

Rosario, 29, was re-signed to a one-year deal by the Bears in late February only to be released on March 10th and neither side has explained that bizarre chain of events. The tight end had seasons of 26 and 32 catches several years ago with the Panthers, but didn’t act as a receiver often in part-time action for the Bears in 2013. He was very productive as a run blocker, however, recording Pro Football Focus’ second-highest run-blocking grade among tight ends, despite playing just 186 snaps (subscription required).

Rosario had signed a one-year, minimum salary deal with the Bears, without any bonus money last time around, so it’s possible that the previous deal was dissolved in order to give him some guaranteed cash.
