Acho was re-signed to a one-year contract by the Bears on Saturday, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Acho has spent the past two seasons in Chicago where he has notched 66 tackles (48 solo), one sack, and two forced fumbles in 31 games following a four-year stint with the Cardinals. He figures to once again provide depth for the Bears' linebacker unit, while Pernell McPhee, Leonard Floyd, and Lamarr Houston figure to compete for the starting roles on the outside.
Acho (personal) is active for Thursday's game against the Packers. Acho missed practice on Tuesday and was limited the rest of the week do to an undisclosed non-injury related issue. He figures to return to a bench role now that Leonard Floyd (claf) has returned to action.
Acho is listed as active for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars. Acho figures to get the start at outside linebacker with Leonard Floyd (calf) inactive. Acho has yet to record five tackles in a game so far this season, but that could change Week 6.
Acho has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears. Acho will remain in Chicago after posting 39 tackles in 15 games for the Bears last season. While the presence of fellow defenders Pernell McPhee, Lamarr Houston and Willie Young blocks Acho path to consistent snaps, his experience should add depth to the Bears' linebacking corp once again.
Acho finished the 2015 season with 39 tackles over 15 games. After being released by the Bears shortly after training camp, Acho quickly re-signed with the club and ended up playing in every game after the season opener. He made a few starts at outside linebacker down the stretch, but typically found himself in a rotation with Pernell McPhee, Willie Young, and Lamarr Houston. All three players showcased more pass-rushing ability than Acho, who failed to notch a single sack.
