The Bears are set to re-sign special teams ace Sherrick McManis, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune tweets. McManis will get a new two-year deal from Chicago. Financial terms of the deal are not yet known.
The cornerback was also picking up interest from the Patriots and Jaguars. McManis doesn’t see a ton of time on defense, but he led the Bears with 17 special teams tackles and he carries a ton of value in that facet of the game.
In other Bears news, the team agreed to sign free agent tackle Bobby Massie to a three-year, $18MM deal with $6.5MM guaranteed on Wednesday. A starter in Arizona during the 2012, 2014 and 2015 seasons, Massie started 16 total games for the Cardinals last season, including both playoff contests, at right tackle.
