    Bears' Sam Acho: Re-signs with Bears

    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.

    Bears' Sam Acho: Finishes with 39 tackles

    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.

    Bears' Sam Acho: Active Sunday

    Acho (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Acho was a limited participant in practice all week, but the 27-year-old looks like he'll still be in line to start at one of the outside linebacker spots. Coach John Fox has been divvying up the snaps fairly evenly of late between Acho and backup linebackers Lamarr Houston and Willie Young, so expect the trio to all see around the same amount of field time while Pernell McPhee (knee) is sidelined Sunday.

    Bears' Sam Acho: Starts Sunday and logs 55 snaps

    Acho started Sunday's game against the Vikings and finished with four tackles in 55 snaps, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Meanwhile, last season's holdovers from the Marc Trestman regime, Willie Young and Lamarr Houston, finished with seven and four snaps, respectively at outside linebacker. It appears neither of those players are deemed appropriate fits for defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's 3-4 scheme, so look for Acho to continue to dominate the snaps at the linebacker spot opposite Pernell McPhee.
