- According to Biggs, McManis receives a two-year, $2.85 million deal with $750K guaranteed.
McManis visited with the Patriots on Thursday, and reportedly had interest from other teams including the Jaguars. However, it looks like he preferred to return to Chicago.
McManis, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Texans back in 2010. He spent just two years Houston before he was traded to the Bears for Tyler Clutts. The Bears elected to bring him back on a one-year contract last year.
In 2015, McManis appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 29 tackles while contributing on special teams.
