The Bears on Friday signed unrestricted free agent receiver Equanimeous St. Brown to a one-year contract.
St. Brown, 25, was selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2018 draft out of Notre Dame. He has appeared in 37 games with 10 starts over three seasons—missing the entire 2019 campaign with an ankle injury—and caught 37 passes for 543 yards and one touchdown.
"We are excited to make Equanimeous St. Brown the newest Bear," said general manager Ryan Poles. "We would like to thank Joby Branion at Vanguard Sports for helping bring him to Chicago."
Last year St. Brown played in 13 games with two starts, registering nine receptions for 98 yards. The 6-5, 214-pounder sustained a concussion last Dec. 12 in a win over the Bears at Lambeau Field.
His brother, Amon-Ra St. Brown, was selected by the Lions in the fourth round of last year's draft and caught 90 passes for 912 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie. Their father, John Brown, was a bodybuilder who won Mr. Universe twice and Mr. World three times.
St. Brown is the second unrestricted free agent the Bears have added from the Packers, following center/guard Lucas Patrick. Both worked in Green Bay with new Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, who coached Packers receivers (2016-17) and quarterbacks (2019-21) while also serving as Green Bay's passing game coordinator in 2020-21.
