The Bears have reached an agreement to retain free agent offensive lineman Eben Britton, the team announced today (via Twitter). Britton will return to Chicago on a one-year contract, according to the club.
Britton, who spent the first four season of his NFL career with the Jaguars, saw 239 offensive snaps for the Bears in 2013, primarily at right guard. While the sample size was limited, Britton recorded a respectable +4.1 grade according to Pro Football Focus’ metrics (subscription required). He’ll provide line depth for Chicago in 2014.
