The Bears, whose safety play was lacking a season ago, have dipped into free agency in an attempt to strengthen the position.

According to ChicagoBears.com, the club has reached a two-year deal with Giants safety Ryan Mundy.

Mundy, 29, notched 77 tackles in 16 games (nine starts) for the Giants in 2013. He started the first seven games at free safety for New York but was replaced later in the season by Will Hill. Mundy joined the Giants in 2013 after four seasons with Pittsburgh.

Mundy looks likely to compete for a regular role in the Chicago secondary. Chris Conte is the incumbent at free safety, while strong safety Major Wright is an unrestricted free agent.

    Not a huge signing but he will likely be a better option than Conte, Draft another saftey like Pryor or Buchanon now and we’ll be set

    Mundy couldn’t hack it as a back-up for the Steelers.

    So the Giants signed him as a starter and he couldn’t hack it there.

    So, now the Bears think he’s good enough to be a starter?

    Glad I’m not a Bears fan!

    See ya Major Wrong. If you’re as late for your cab as you we’re on run plays you’ll be walking home.

    Depth signing

    Good signing. It appears there’s quite a bit of sour grapes from Giants and Steelers fans. Mundy can play!

    great back up … slightly below average starter. was signed for giants to fill in till hills suspension was over.

    There’s conte’s competition, now time for wright’s replacement. Next 24 hours will be interesting.

    Bears are the worst. Always signing garbage well after their prime. The Bears will always suck because ownership is clueless.

    Not great but not a bad addition either. Will still need to draft a safety in first three rounds. Go get DRC who is now looking for a home since Denver shoved him out the door in favor of Talib. Pair him with Jennings (as Tillman looks to be gone) and Mundy will be that much better.

    He’s a far better safety than either Conte or Wright according to any ranking system I have seen. He was ranked 37th amongst all safeties in 2013, while Conte and Wright were 120+. He’s not great, but a major upgrade.
