Danny Trevathan Signs A Deal With The Chicago Bears


It is being reported that the Chicago Bears and free agent linebacker Danny Trevathan have come to an agreement, and the former Denver Broncos linebacker will be reunited with his former head coach, John Fox.

The former sixth-round pick has turned himself into a very good three-down linebacker and should be the next leader in the middle of the Chicago defense.

He’s not a Brian Urlacher type of talent, but he will add stability to a defense that struggled mightily.

Trevathan is an excellent defender in coverage and can hold up well against the run.  He was a majorly underrated part of one of the greatest defenses ever in Denver last season.

The Broncos look like a team that’s poised to go from first to worst, as they’ve lost defensive end Malik Jackson, quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, guard Louis Vasquez, tight end Owen Daniels and now Trevathan.
