Roster Move: Bears agree to contract extension with Patrick Scales 


The Bears on Sunday agreed to terms on a one-year extension with long-snapper Patrick Scales, pending a physical.

Scales remains the longest tenured Bears player and has appeared in 120 games over eight seasons with the team. Throughout the past six seasons, Scales has played in each of the Bears' 99 games.

Undrafted out of Utah State in 2011, Scales was cut five times by four different teams over three years before finally playing in his first NFL regular season game with the Ravens Dec. 21, 2014.

Scales then joined the Bears in 2015, appearing in the team's final five games, and has been with the club since.

The long-snapper became the second Bears player to earn an extension in the past week. The Bears on Thursday agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with cornerback Jaylon Johnson. The team also re-negotiated/extended receiver Collin Johnson and signed defensive back Tavarius Moore on Friday.
