The Bears have agreed to a deal with former Eagles tight end Trey Burton

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton, the dependable pass catcher who threw a touchdown to Nick Foles in last month's Super Bowl victory, will sign with the Chicago Bears in free agency, according to several reports. While the guaranteed money hasn't been released yet, this is a massive shake-up to the Bears offense under new head coach Matt Nagy.

The dual tight end thing is interesting: Shaheen was a pretty high draft pick for Chicago past year and considered a "Baby Gronk" type. But when asked to step in and make an appearance, Burton didn't disappoint. Burton caught just 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns for the Eagles last season, but he had some big games down the stretch and was behind Zach Ertz on the depth chart. In those two seasons, he registered 60 receptions for 575 yards and six touchdowns, with a minimal number of starts. The Bears owe Dion Sims, a blocking tight end, $4 million if he's on the roster after Friday. After seeing him land $32 million on day two of the legal tampering period, it's fair to say they may have been right. That should mean good fantasy things for Burton, but he might have to compete with 2017 second-rounder Adam Shaheen for targets. Coming from Andy Reid's tree of coaching that utilizes the tight end position very heavily, Burton should be targeted an bad lot.
