Bears Re-Sign TE Zach Miller.

One of the worst moments from the Chicago Bears 2017 season was without a doubt the Zach Miller injury. Miller dislocated his left knee and tore the popliteal artery that pushes blood to the lower leg. He needed emergency surgery to save his leg and almost lost his leg all together, he has since had eight subsequent procedures. The Bears announced on Monday that they've signed Miller to a one year contract. The contract will pay him $458,000 in 2018 if he's unable to play and $790,000 if he somehow manages to beat the odds and play football in 2018. While Miller does seem to accept the fact that he'll likely never play football again, the 33 year old told the Chicago Tribune in January that his goal is to return to the NFL. It's definitely a classy move by the Bears seeing that Miller was a free agent and the team didn't owe him anything. As Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk points out, it also sends a message to the Bears locker room that the team is willing to go above and beyond to take care of their players.
