Bears Sign Punter Adam Podlesh To Replace Brad Maynard

CHICAGO (CBS) — The Bears filled a major void by signing punter Adam Podlesh.

It was indeed was a big void since, well, the Bears didn’t have a punter, after parting with veteran Brad Maynard.

The Chicago Sun-Times’ Sean Jensen tweeted that Podlesh has a five-year deal worth more than $10 million.

Podlesh, 27, averaged 43.8 yards per punt with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.
