(CBS) The Bears officially announced they had re-signed veteran tight end Desmond Clark to a one-year deal Tuesday afternoon.

Clark’s time with the Bears appeared to be over, but in the last week, the team traded Greg Olsen and released Brandon Manumaleuna, creating space for Clark on the roster.

Clark has been with the Bears since 2003 and ranks ninth in franchise history with 242 receptions.
