Chicago Bears adding Eagles Super Bowl star TE Burton

According to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Burton has signed a four-year deal with the Bears. He posted 37 catches for 327 yards and one touchdown in 2016 and 23 receptions for 248 yards and five scores in 2017. Burton may only have five career starts to his name, but Week 14 last season was the flawless example of what he's capable of after filling in for the injured Ertz by catching five passes for 71 yards with two scores.
