The Chicago Bears are signing former Patriots receiver Damiere Byrd to a one-year deal, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.
This signing should help a certain area of need for the Bears offense this upcoming season.
In 2020, Byrd registered a career-high 47 catches for 604 yards and a touchdown.
His numbers were decent despite being in the Patriots' 30th ranked offense. He had just one drop in 31 targets that were 10+ yards.
In 44 career games between the Panthers and Patriots, the 28-year-old has 91 catches for 1,092 yards and four touchdowns.
Byrd played football during his college days at South Carolina.
