The Bears added additional help on special teams by agreeing to a one-year contract with free agent safety Omar Bolden, the team announced on Thursday.

With the signing, the Bears are fast becoming the Chicago Broncos, given that Bolden is the latest Broncos free agent to join former head coach John Fox in Chicago. Bolden follows inside linebacker Danny Trevathan, offensive lineman Manny Ramirez and long snapper Aaron Brewer to the Windy City.

Bolden is a four-year veteran with just one career start under his belt. He’s largely a special teams contributor, but he creates competition in the secondary at the very least.

Bolden had an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown against the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 8.
