The Chicago Bears announced the signing of veteran CB Tracy Porter to a one-year contract on Monday.

Porter, 28, had one year remaining on his two-year, $6 million contract when the Redskins cut him a few week ago.
Chicago GM Ryan Pace has ties to Porter from their time together in New Orleans.
In 2014, Porter appeared in just three games for the Redskins and recorded five tackles and a pass defense, so it’s really not surprising to see them move on and give some of their younger players an opportunity.
