Cornerback Desmond Trufant has agreed to join the Bears on a one-year deal, as per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. Terms of the deal are not yet known.
Trufant will try to fill the Bears’ post-Kyle Fuller void, but he’s unlikely to match his production. Fuller left Chicago with passes defended (82), good for top-five in franchise history. He also ranked in the top 20 for tackles (390) and interceptions (19).
After his best seasons with the Falcons, Trufant was rewarded with a five-year megadeal worth approximately $69M.
