The Bears have reached a one-year deal with reserve linebacker and special-teams ace Brian Iwuh, the team announced Sunday evening.

Iwuh registered just 16 defensive tackles last season as a backup outside 'backer, but was key on coverage teams, registering 10 tackles in that department.

The Bears lost key special-teams contributors, Rashied Davis (to the Lions) and Danieal Manning (to the Texans), so retaining Iwuh was important for the club.
