NFL: Bears sign CB Jennings, release FB McKie
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — The Chicago Bears have signed free agent cornerback Tim Jennings to a two-year contract and released fullback Jason McKie.
A second-round draft pick by Indianapolis in 2006, Jennings recorded 157 tackles and four interceptions in four years with the Colts. He was not offered a tender after the season, making him free to sign elsewhere.
McKie spent seven seasons with the Bears, catching 62 passes for 344 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for 84 yards and three TDs on 29 carries. He also had 15 special teams tackles for Chicago.
