Kelvin Hayden is heading to Chicago.

Hayden, a free agent cornerback who spent last season with the Falcons, has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports.

Prior to signing with the Falcons last year, Hayden played six years for the Colts in the same Cover 2 defense that Lovie Smith runs in Chicago. He’ll know the defense from Day One.

Hayden played in eight games for the Falcons last year, starting one, and had two interceptions, one of which came against his old team in Indianapolis.
