Some Bears veterans didn’t want to sign one-year contracts for modest salaries. Some did.
Kelvin Hayden did.
As expected, the Bears have announced that Hayden has agreed to terms on a one-year deal. A second-round pick of the Colts in 2005, Hayden joined the Bears last season, appearing in all 16 games with two starts.
Hayden had 40 tackles, one interception, and three deflected passes in 2012. He also tied for the NFL lead with four fumble recoveries.
