Linebacker Aaron Lynch visited with a few teams last month after free agency opened, but he won’t be leaving Chicago.
The Bears announced on Monday that Lynch has signed a one-year deal to remain with the team. Lynch, who is No. 70 on PFT’s Free Agent Top 100 list, joined the Bears as a free agent last year.
Lynch had 16 tackles, three sacks and an interception while playing a reserve role in most of his 13 appearances. Lynch missed the final two games of the regular season and the team’s playoff loss to the Eagles with an elbow injury.
