The Bears on Friday retained a handful of veteran free agents including defensive tackle Anthony Adams, linebacker Nick Roach, and quarterback Caleb Hanie.
Adams and Roach each agreed to two-year deals, maintaining stability at defensive tackle and linebacker, respectively. Adams has been a steady player for the Bears since signing with the team in 2007. He started all 16 games last year and is an influential player in the locker room. Roach has been with the team for four years, starting 15 games in 2009 and filling in as a capable reserve and key special teams player the rest of the time.
Hanie signed his one-year restricted free agent tender and is expected to open training camp as the backup to Jay Cutler.
