There’s some uncertainty about what the tight end position will look like for the Bears this season with word of their willingness to trade Martellus Bennett while Zach Miller is a free agent who reportedly met with the Rams on Sunday.
One thing that is certain is that Rob Housler will remain on the roster. The team announced that Housler has signed a one-year deal to remain with the team.
Housler joined the Bears in December after Bennett was placed on injured reserve due to injured ribs. He played four games and caught three passes for 27 yards. Housler opened last season as a member of the Browns and played six games for Cleveland, but had just one catch as Gary Barnidge took the top spot on the depth chart at tight end. Housler was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury before being released.
Should Miller and/or Bennett leave, there will be other moves at the position this offseason as Housler, Khari Lee and Gannon Sinclair aren’t likely to hold things down to the team’s satisfaction.
