Tashaun Gipson Sr. is on his way back to the Bears.

ESPN’s Dan Graziano tweets the Bears and Gipson are in agreement on a one-year deal to keep last year’s safety tandem together. Gipson, 30, started all 16 games last season and played 1,054 defensive snaps on Chicago’s defense in 2020. Or to put it another way, Gipson was on the field for 98.4 percent of the defense’s plays.
