Trey Burton to Sign 4-Year Bears Contract Worth $32 Million”

The Chicago Bears are making moves to surround their young quarterback with as much talent as possible, and have reportedly agreed to terms with free agent tight end Trey Burton.

NFL Network's duo of Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo have the details...

The deal can be worth up to $32 million.

"It wasn't anything we saw from the Rams, we just had opportunities to make plays and we did", Burton told Eagles reporter Dave Spadaro afterward. "That's what we do here".

The 26-year-old caught 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns last year, and notoriously threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Nick Foles in the Eagles' title game victory. An average annual value of $8 million would place him among the highest-paid tight ends in football. Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the second-year, would-be franchise quarterback who is getting a lot of weapons added around him courtesy of GM Ryan Pace. Though Philadelphia valued Burton's versatility and contributions to the offseason in a limited role, the former Florida Gator performed well enough last season to earn a lucrative contract on the open market.

Burton fits right in as the replacement for Zach Miller in that receiving tight end role, and the Bears are projecting bigger production from him in a bigger role in Chicago.
