Bears Sign Bear Pascoe

Bear is officially a Bear — according to the Chicago Bears (via Twitter), the team has signed free agent tight end Bear Pascoe to a one-year contract.

Pascoe, who turned 29 earlier in the offseason, spent five seasons with the Giants to start his NFL career before playing for the Falcons in 2014. Although he primarily serves as a blocker, Pascoe has totaled 40 receptions for 336 yards and two touchdowns in his career. He caught just two passes last year in 148 offensive snaps for Atlanta, though one went for a TD.

In Chicago, Pascoe figures to provide some more veteran presence on a tight end depth chart that also features Martellus Bennett, Zach Miller, and Dante Rosario, among others. He’ll likely receive a minimum salary contract, and won’t necessarily be assured a regular season roster spot.
