The Chicago Bears announced the signing of TE Matthew Mulligan on Tuesday.
#Bears have agreed to terms with TE Matthew Mulligan on a one-year contract.

Mulligan, 29, signed with the Packers last year, but wasn’t able to crack their 53-man roster and was released before the start of the season. He would later sign on with the Patriots and appear in 15 games totaling two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown.
Mulligan is really more of blocking tight end than a receiving threat, but he could prove to be a good value if he’s able to secure a roster spot.
