The Chicago Bears free agency signing spree just doesn't stop. 

The Bears landed four new players yesterday on the first day of free agency and they don't look like they will be slowing down anytime soon following news of their latest acquisition.

Chicago have given another boost to their defensive side of the ball with the recruiting of former Green Bay Packers safety M.D Jennings.

Jennings measures in at six foot and tips the scales at 187 pounds. 

He started every game last season at safety as a member of the Packers and recorded 74 combined tackles in his 16 games, only 18 of which were assisted.

The safety position was the Bears biggest need in this off-season as Major Wright and Chris Conte both had their struggles in the 2013 season with Wright likely to leave.

He is the second safety the Bears have brought in following the signing of former New York Giant man Ryan Mundy yesterday. 

Whilst none of the signings are seemingly massive upgrades on what they had before, it seems that the Bears want to stock up at the position and let the players fight for those starting roles in pre-season training and scrimmages.

Jennings joins Mundy, defensive end Lamarr Houston and linebackers DJ Williams and Jordan Senn as the newest signings at Soldier Field.
