Bears agree to terms with veteran safety Quintin Demps

Veteran safety Quintin Demps is heading to Chicago.

Demps announced on Twitter that he is signing with the Bears.

The 31-year-old Demps spent the last two seasons with the Texans, starting 13 games in both 2016 and 2015. He has previously played for the Giants, Chiefs and Eagles. He’s coming off a 2016 season in which he had a career-high six interceptions.

The Bears need plenty of help on both sides of the ball and appear willing to spend to get that help sooner rather than later. Coach John Fox and G.M. Ryan Pace will hope players like Demps can be part of a turnaround, a turnaround that could cost Fox and Pace their jobs if it doesn’t come this year.

    31? So basically, this year’s Terry Porter. It looks like Pace is set on shopping the bargain basement for DB help in FA. Hope he has a different perspective on draft day.

    This is a smart move by Chicago. Lots of holes to fill and they couldn’t get worse than they were in the secondary last year. Throw a bunch of cheap stuff at the wall and see what sticks.

    Then they’ll draft a late round developmental defensive back to sit behind him and learn for a year or two before replacing him. Hopefully anyways. If Fox and Pace don’t draft well they’ll be gone sooner rather than later.

    Bouye should be next target. Gillmore to Pats.

    Lets hope he works out better than Antrel Rolle. Certainly an upgrade from Prosinski…perhaps he can teach Amos a thing or two
