Free-agent CB Artie Burns (Bears) re-signed with the Chicago Bears Friday, March 26. He signed a one-year contract, but financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Burns missed 2020 with a torn ACL after the Bears signed him on a one-year prove it deal. The failed Steelers 2016 first round pick will get another chance in a Bears secondary that lost Kyle Fuller with only Desmond Trufant signed as a possible replacement.
