The Bears on Friday re-signed safety DeAndre Houston-Carson to a one-year contract.
Selected by the Bears in the sixth-round of the 2016 draft out of William & Mary, Houston-Carson has appeared in 32 games in three seasons, primarily as a special-teams contributor. He has recorded four tackles, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 18 special-teams tackles.
Last season, Houston-Carson played in a career-high 13 games and registered four tackles, one fumble recovery and six special-teams tackles.
He is the sixth Bears player the team has re-signed since the end of last season, joining right tackle Bobby Massie, tight end Ben Braunecker, punter Patrick O'Donnell, quarterback Tyler Bray and defensive tackle Nick Williams.
In addition, the Bears have inked six players from other NFL teams since the start of the new league year March 13: Receiver/return specialist Cordarrelle Patterson (Patriots), running back Mike Davis (Seahawks), nickel back Buster Skrine (Jets), safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (Redskins), offensive lineman Ted Larsen (Dolphins) and receiver Marvin Hall (Falcons).
