Bears Free Agency News: Danny McCray Signs 1-Year Deal


The Chicago Bears continued on Tuesday to bolster their defensive secondary.

On Tuesday, the Chicago Bears agreed to a one-year deal with Dallas Cowboys free agent safety Danny McCray. McCray is familiar with Cowboys special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis. DeCamillis indicated on Tuesday that McCray will likely play special teams with the Bears in 2014.

McCray also provides depth at the safety position for the Bears. While McCray only made eight tackles for the Cowboys last season, the safety made 12 starts for the Cowboys at the safety position in 2012 and compiled 71 tackles.

McCray will give the Bears depth at the safety position. McCray is the third free agent safety that the Bears have brought in behind Ryan Mundy and M.D. Jennings. With both Mundy and Jennings being starters last season, McCray likely is a depth signing for the Bears to go along with his special teams contributions.

2014 will be McCray’s fifth season in the NFL after signing with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2010.
