Bears re-sign Eben Britton

H. Rick Bamman - Bears' offensive linemen Eben Britton blocks during an extra point attemt in the NFL game against Baltimore Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013.

The Bears re-signed offensive lineman Eben Britton to a one-year deal on Thursday. He played in 13 games with four starts last season.

The top backup on the O-line, Britton can play guard or tackle, and he played in 22.2 percent of the snaps, mostly as a sixth offensive lineman.

In the season finale, Britton stepped in for an injured Jordan Mills in the second series to play right tackle for the rest of the game.

A second-round pick by the Jaguars in 2009, Britton has played in 50 games with 34 starts in his career.

By re-signing Britton, the Bears now return every player who played on offense last season, except for Josh McCown —who signed with the Buccaneers — and Earl Bennett and Michael Bush, who were both released.
