According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Bears have agreed to a 5-year deal with punter Adam Podlesh. Podlesh has spent his first four years in the league with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Podlesh finished fourth in the league in 2010 with a 39.2 net average on his punts. He also downed 26 punts inside the 20. Both numbers were better than those of former punter Brad Maynard.
