Bears Re-Sign Demontre Hurst

The Bears have reached an agreement with cornerback Demontre Hurst that extends his contract for two more years, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune (via Twitter).

Hurst, who will turn 24 next month, had been an exclusive rights free agent after signing a one-year deal with the Bears back in September. The Oklahoma product was an unexpected contributor on defense, totaling 40 tackles to go along with an interception and a forced fumble. For the season, Hurst played 373 defensive snaps.

By inking a two-year deal, which will almost certainly be worth the minimum salary, Hurst will be locked up through the 2016 season, after which he’ll be eligible for restricted free agency.
