The Bears have agreed to terms on a two-year, $4 million deal with punter Pat O'Donnell, a source told PFT.

O’Donnell punted 62 times last season for a 45.0 yards average and 39.7 net. He had one punt blocked and had 28 downed inside the 20.

For his career, O’Donnell has a 44.9 yards average on 358 punts.

  1. Has not done anything to warrant a $2M/yr contract. Who was bidding at that level for his services? I don’t O’Donnell (except for his shank in the playoffs) but what’s the need here?

    One of the things I don’t like about GM Pace is it seems like often he bids against himself. No reason they couldn’t have offered $3M for 2yrs and just gotten an undrafted rookie if he walked.
