The Bears announced on Thursday that they’ve agreed to a two-year extension with cornerback Sherrick McManis.
Although McManis adds depth to the cornerback position, his main value comes as a core special teams player.
McManis led the Bears with 17 tackles on special teams last season, according to the Chicago Tribune, and has had 55 tackles over the course of four seasons.
McManis reportedly turned down offers from the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the Tribune.
