After declining to tender an offer to defensive tackle Nate Collins and allowing him to become a free agent, the Chicago Bears elected to keep him in the Windy City after all.

According to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Bears re-signed Collins to a one-year contract on Thursday. Collins will make a league minimum $715,000 next season.

Collins was scheduled to be a restricted free agent before the Bears declined to tender him an offer. Collins appeared in nine games for the Bears last season and recorded 11 tackles and a pass defensed. With the release of defensive tackle Matt Toeaina, Collins gives the Bears some additional depth along their defensive line.
