Bears expected to sign tight end Trey Burton to four-year deal

Burton may only have five career starts to his name, but Week 14 last season was the ideal example of what he's capable of after filling in for the injured Ertz by catching five passes for 71 yards with two scores. He was also a key special-teams contributor for the Eagles, finishing third with nine special-teams tackles last season and also came up with a fumble recovery.

The Bears will also add former Dolphins kicker Cody Parkey, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

If healthy, the 24-year-old receiver would give the Bears their first genuine playmaker at wide receiver since Alshon Jeffery left for the Eagles last offseason. He will be paid as a starter with the Bears.

Jose Mourinho: We hold no advantage at home
Giggs says the criticism started following the 0-0 Premier League draw with Liverpool at Anfield last October. And the Portuguese admitted United have no advantage as a score draw would see Sevilla progress.

Burton has agreed to a four-year contract worth up to $32 million, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported. Robinson once had a 1,400-yard season in which he led the league in touchdowns while catching passes from Blake Bortles.at the age of 22. The Ashland University product showed only occasional flashes and finished with 12 receptions for 127 yards (10.6-yard average), although three of his receptions went for touchdowns.

Signing with the Bears should allow Burton to get more consistent playing time than he did in Philadelphia.

It has been a foregone conclusion that tight end Trey Burton was moving on once free agency started. Burton took a handoff on an apparent end-around but tossed a touchdown pass to QB Nick Foles on fourth-and-goal from the Patriots' one-yard line.
