Bears re-sign Steltz, add McCray

The Bears added two more safeties to the roster on Tuesday, agreeing to terms on one-year deals with Craig Steltz and Danny McCray.

Steltz re-signs for his seventh season with the Bears. In his six-year career, he has 122 tackles. Last season, Steltz played in all 16 games and started against the Vikings, where he led the team with 12 tackles.

As a special-teams contributor, Steltz tied for the team lead with eight tackles last season.

McCray, 26, spent the first four seasons of his career with the Cowboys. He has played in 60 games and has 119 tackles and three passes defensed. Another special-teamer, McCray played for current Bears special-teams coach Joe DeCamillis in Dallas from 2010-12.

In 2012, McCray started 10 games and had 71 tackles and one interception.

With Steltz and McCray added to the 2014 Bears roster, there will be plenty of competition for final roster spots for those who contribute on special teams. Newcomers Jordan Senn, Domenik Hixon and M.D. Jennings are all known for their work in that category.
