Bears Free Agency News: Ryan Mundy Signs Two-Year Deal


On top of signing free agent defensive end Lamarr Houston on Tuesday, the Bears also came to an agreement with free agent safety Ryan Mundy.

Mundy signed a 2-year deal with the Bears on Tuesday and will likely be one of the team’s two starting safeties next season.

Prior to signing with the Bears on Tuesday, Mundy spent the first four seasons of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before playing for the New York Giants last season. With the Giants last season, Mundy tallied 77 tackles to go along with 1 interception.

On his career, Mundy has recorded 207 tackles to go along with 2 interceptions.

Improving the safety position was one of the main objectives of the off-season for Bears general manager Phil Emery. The Bears safety tandem of Major Wright and Chris Conte rated to be the worst starting safety pairing in the entire league last season. With Mundy replacing Wright as a starter, Conte will enter training camp having to compete for his starting spot. The Bears will likely target the safety position in the upcoming draft in May.

Mundy will be introduced by the Bears on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. CST.
