Bears' John Timu: Remaining in Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Timu re-signed with the Bears on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Timu failed to receive a qualifying offer from the Bears last week, making him an unrestricted free agent. However, the two sides have now reached an agreement, meaning the undrafted linebacker will remain in Chicago, where he has spent his first three seasons. Last year, Timu recorded 16 tackles (12 solo) and one pass defensed in 11 games -- playing mostly in a special teams role.

John Timu: Not retained by Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Timu didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Bears and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.

It looks like Timu's time in Chicago is over after the undrafted Washington product spent the past three seasons with the Bears, accruing 59 tackles and two pass breakups in 29 games. Still only 25 years old, Timu should be able to find a job elsewhere this offseason as a reserve linebacker capable of providing utility on special teams.
