Bears re-sign punter, backup QB


The Chicago Bears re-signed two players Wednesday -- starting punter Patrick O'Donnell and reserve quarterback Tyler Bray.

O'Donnell, 28, has been the team's punter for the past five seasons after being selected in the sixth round of the 2014 draft out of the University of Miami. He has a franchise-best career average of 44.9 yards per punt and set the team's single-season record of 47.0 in 2017.

O'Donnell averaged 45.0 yards last season on 62 attempts, tying a career high with 28 punts inside the 20-yard line.

Bray, 27, spent much of the 2018 season on the practice squad in his first season in Chicago and figures to go to camp as the third-stringer. He spent his first five NFL seasons with the Chiefs, appearing in one game and attempting one pass.
