Jaye Howard inks one-year deal with Bears
Jaye Howard signed a one-year deal with the Bears on Thursday.
Howard signing for the Bears is a big addition for one of the worst rush defenses in the league. If he stays healthy he could significantly improve the Bears defensive line. The Bears in 2016 gave up 121.9 yards-per-game on the ground while surrendering 4.4 yards-per-carry to opposing running backs. The Bears defense could surprise teams this year with their offseason additions. As of now, consider them a middle of the pack defense still and only consider them in the deepest of leagues.
