Tight and Trey Burton

The NFL franchise announced Friday, the Chicago Bears revealed tight end Trey Burton.

Chicago made the move two years after Super Bowl signing TE Burton signed a four-year contract.

Burton agreed to a $ 32 million deal with the Bears on March 25, and he responded with 54 career highs, 569 yards and six touchdowns in his first season in Chicago.

The 20-year-old, who was limited to eight games last season, was placed on injured reserve due to a field injury in November and had 4 catches for 5 yards and a score.

Chicago signed Jimmy Graham’s former All-Pro strongman last month, and Burton’s role was drastically reduced.

Burton spent his first four seasons with the Philadelphia Aggies and dropped a touchdown on quarterback Nick Foles in the Super Bowl win against the New England Patriots in 2018.
