Chicago Bears announced they've agreed to terms Wednesday with former Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings, of Calhoun City, on a one-year deal.
Terms of the contract weren't immediately disclosed.
The 25-year-old Jennings started all 16 games at free safety for the Packers in 2013, recording 74 tackles. However, he was not tendered as a restricted free agent.
Jennings (6-0, 187) could provide competition for Chris Conte, the Bears’ starting free safety a season ago.
Jennings came into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas State and has posted 133 career tackles, an interception and three pass breakups.
