ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Former Bears cornerback Bryce Callahan agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal with the Broncos, reuniting with Denver coach Vic Fangio, who was his defensive coordinator in Chicago.
Callahan is the second unrestricted free agent defensive back Denver has signed in free agency, joining former Houston Texans hard-hitter Kareem Jackson in the “No Fly Zone” Version 2.0.
Callahan joined the Bears as a college free agent out of Rice University in 2015 and has 122 tackles, four sacks, four interceptions, 20 pass breakups and a forced fumble in four NFL seasons.
He started 10 games and appeared in three more with the Bears last season when he posted a career-best 45 tackles to go with two sacks, two interceptions and six pass breakups. He allowed just one touchdown.
The Broncos also re-signed tight end Jeff Heuerman, one of their own unrestricted free agents, to a two-year, $9 million contract Friday.
