Cornerback B.W. Webb started a career-high eight games last year with the Saints.

Webb, 26, has appeared in 49 NFL games with 10 starts in four seasons with the Cowboys (2013), Steelers (2014), Titans (2015) and Saints (2016), recording 61 tackles, two interceptions and 14 pass breakups.

Webb was selected by Dallas in the fourth round of the 2013 draft out of William & Mary. Last year he played in 14 games with the Saints, establishing career highs with eight starts, 27 tackles and 11 pass breakups while registering one interception.

Webb is the fourth defensive back the Bears have added this offseason, joining cornerbacks Prince Amukamara (Jaguars) and Marcus Cooper (Cardinals) and safety Quintin Demps (Texans). They've also re-signed cornerbacks Bryce Callahan and Johnthan Banks and safety Chris Prosinski.
