The Bears have looked to Green Bay for safety help.
The club said Wednesday it had reached a one-year contract with Packers safety M.D. Jennings.
The 25-year-old Jennings started all 16 games at free safety for the Packers in 2013, notching 74 tackles and defending one pass. However, he was not tendered as a restricted free agent.
Jennings (6-0, 187) could provide competition for Chris Conte, the Bears’ starting free safety a season ago. The Bears also added Giants safety Ryan Mundy on Tuesday, signaling their desire to help a position that had its problems in 2013.
