Former Eagles TE Trey Burton to sign with the Bears

The Bears will also sign kicker Cody Parkey, who connected on 21 of 23 FG attempts (91.3 percent) a year ago for the Miami Dolphins, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 26-year-old University of Florida product shined in the Eagles' 43-35 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14. Burton may only have five career starts to his name, but Week 14 last season was the ideal example of what he's capable of after filling in for the injured Ertz by catching five passes for 71 yards with two scores. He will be paid as a starter with the Bears.

The Bears appear to be on the verge of landing two big new weapons for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, reportedly agreeing to terms with free agent wide receiver Allen Robinson and tight end Trey Burton. Sims caught just 15 passes for 180 yards (12.0-yard average) and one touchdown. That should mean good fantasy things for Burton, but he might have to compete with 2017 second-rounder Adam Shaheen for targets.

Bills to keep Williams, Bills add Lotulelei
Lotulelei is reunited with McDermott, who was the Panthers defensive co-ordinator before taking over in Buffalo in January 2017. One day before free agency was set to start, the Bills are bringing the longtime player back to Buffalo for the 2018 season.

It turns out his destination is Chicago, where Burton caught his first career touchdown pass from Carson Wentz in 2016.

Fans around the National Football League best know him for his role in the "Philly Special" play in Super Bowl LII, where he threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles before the end of the first half. Burton took a handoff on an apparent end-around but tossed a touchdown pass to QB Nick Foles on fourth-and-goal from the Patriots' one-yard line.
