The on-again, off-again union between the Bears and Dante Rosario continues, as the team announced they’ve reached a one-year deal with the tight end on Thursday.

Rosario came to the Bears in 2013 and caught just one pass the entire season. He was re-signed following that season, only to be cut 11 days later. He eventually re-signed with the team again and caught 16 passes in part-time duty last year.

Rosario played the first four seasons of his career in Carolina with new Bears head coach John Fox, and then reunited with his coach in Denver for one season in 2011. The two obviously have a comfort level together.

The Bears are looking for a second option behind starting tight end and Pro Bowler Martellus Bennett. The team already reached a deal with Zach Miller in February.
