Well, that didn’t take long.

Not long after news broke that Bryce Callahan is in Denver for a visit comes word from Dianna Russini of ESPN that the cornerback has agreed to a deal with the Broncos.

It’s a three-year, $21 million deal that includes $10 million fully guaranteed, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Callahan played for Vic Fangio in Chicago.

Callahan, 27, spent his first four seasons with the Bears. He appeared in 45 games with 29 starts since signing with Chicago as an undrafted free agent.

In his career, Callahan has made 122 tackles, four interceptions, 20 pass breakups and four sacks. He played 13 games with 10 starts last season, recording 45 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions.

Callahan ranked 26th on PFT’s list of top-100 free agents.

  1. Just when we thought Elway had completely lost his mind, he pulls a fast one on us and makes a solid move. Pairing Callahan with Kareem Jackson & Chris Harris Jr. may form an amazing under the radar secondary.

  2. Very good nickel CB, but has a lot of injury history. Risky. Bears fans wish him the best. πŸ™‚

  3. Harris, Jackson, Callahan……somewhere out there Von Miller and Bradley Chubb are smiling. The team needs it to compete in the pass happy AFC west.

  4. Denver signed PFFs 2nd (Callahan) and 3rd (Jackson) best ranked corners. Callahan can take the slot and allow Chris Harris to follow the best receiver all over the field. Major upgrade and necessary with Mahomes and Rivers carving up defenses.

  5. Losing Fangio was a massive blow to the Bears defense.

    This offseason the Bears D has also taken some big hits losing quality players.

    I don’t see Pagano and Clinton-Dix as improvements, sorry. Could be a big step back this season on D in Chi. I do expect Denver’s D to improve though

  6. Not sure why anyone would think the Bears D would take a “big step back”. While Pagano isn’t Fangio, he’s still proven to be a good coordinator. Skrine can stay healthy, whereas Callahan couldn’t. Amos was the 4th best player in that secondary and at times Clinton-Dix has played well in not talented defenses. Also, last I checked Mack was still on the Bears and this year has the benefit of a full training camp. So I’m not sure why anyone would expect a huge drop off in that defense since most of the talent is still in place.

  7. The Vikings troll says:

    “Proven to be a good coordinator”


    So, one season 8 years ago as DC for the Ravens, this makes you “Proven to be a good coordinator?”

    I stand by my statement that losing Fangio was a huge blow to the Bears defense.πŸ‘Œ

  8. Uh yeah, because he was impressive enough to get a head coaching gig out of it.

    And I stand by everything else I said in my original post that you conveniently ignored, Skrine compared to Callahan, Amos, and the fact that Hicks is still on the Bears. All the reason why expecting a huge drop off is wishful thinking.

    And why would you think someone defending the Bears defense is “a Vikings troll”? An observation about as brilliant as the rest of your insight into the Bears defense.

  9. I expect a marginal drop on D. But the intangibles of another year under Roquan’s belt, Mack as well having a full camp.

    Bears don’t have a choice, Amos and Callahan commanding big dollars and we committed to Mack. Also Vic departing wasn’t anything Pace could control.

    Defense wins championships but you have to be able to score my TDs than your kicker in a playoff game.
