Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Bears have re-signed safety Craig Steltz to a two-year contract.
Steltz, 26 in May, started five games last season and forced a pair of fumbles. He also set a career high with 53 tackles.
Chris Conte and Major Wright project as the Bears’ starting safeties in 2012, but Steltz makes for a solid No. 3 option and also contributes in kickoff and punt coverage.
Steltz recorded ten special teams tackles last season.
