(CBS) — The Bears added to their special teams unit Tuesday by re-signing safety Craig Steltz and agreeing to terms with safety Danny McCray.
Both contracts are one-year deals.
McCray comes to the Bears from Dallas, where he was a productive special teamer under current Bears special teams coach Joe DeCamillis. McCray joined the Cowboys in 2010 as an undrafted free agent out of LSU and led the team in special teams tackles in 2010 and 2011 before starting 10 games at safety in 2012.
Steltz returns for his seventh season with the Bears. He was a fourth round draft pick out of LSU in 2008. Steltz had 12 special teams tackles in 2013, but was also guilty of a tough holding penalty in St. Louis that brought back a Devin Hester return touchdown. The veteran also contributed 12 tackles while filling in for Major Wright at strong safety Dec. 1 against the Vikings.
