The Bears announced on Twitter that they have agreed to terms with tight end Matthew Mulligan on a one-year contract. Chicago worked out Mulligan yesterday and wasted little time in reaching a deal with him.
Mulligan, 29, blocked a punt and caught a touchdown pass for the Rams in their victory over the Redskins in 2012. Last season, Mulligan was with the Patriots and made four starts. In 12 total games, the tight end recorded two receptions for 16 yards and one touchdown.
