The makover happening in the Bears' secondary continued on Sunday morning. 

Bears GM Ryan Pace has reportedly signed safety Jordan Lucas. The deal happened not even 24 hours after Chicago brought in former first-round cornerback Artie Burns on a one-year deal

Lucas, 26, has played for Miami and Kansas City during his four-year career. He was a sixth-round pick out of Penn State in the 2016 draft and appeared in 19 games over two seasons for the Dolphins. In September of 2018, Lucas was traded to the Chiefs for a seventh-round pick in 2020, and has played in 30 games (starting four) since. Through 49 career games, Lucas has 29 solo tackles, one sack and one interception. 

The safety's best season, according to Pro Football Focus, came in 2017 with the Dolphins. That year, Lucas was graded as the 61st best safety (68.9) and was also an elite tackler (fifth overall) by the same metrics (90.0). 

Lucas presumably will come into camp competing with Bush for a starting role next to Eddie Jackson.
