Bears re-sign Hayden to one-year deal

CHICAGO – Kelvin Hayden will play in his hometown for at least one more season.

The Bears re-signed Hayden to a one-year deal Tuesday, which marked the seventh consecutive day in which they have agreed to terms with a free agent. Hayden joined offensive lineman Jonathan Scott, safety Tom Zbikowski and linebackers D.J. Williams and James Anderson as players who have signed one-year contracts in the past week.

Hayden, who will turn 30 years old in July, supplanted D.J. Moore last season as the Bears’ primary nickelback on passing downs alongside Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings. Hayden finished the season with four fumble recoveries, which tied for most in the NFL, to go along with 40 tackles, one interception and three pass break-ups.

Before joining the Bears in 2012, Hayden spent six seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and one season with the Atlanta Falcons.
