(670 The Score) The Bears will re-sign punter Pat O'Donnell to a two-year, $4-million deal, ESPN insider Adam Schefter reported Monday night.

A sixth-round pick of the Bears in 2014, O'Donnell has averaged 44.9 yards per punt during his five years with the team. He averaged 45 yards on 62 punts in 2018.

O'Donnell, 28, addresses what would've otherwise been a need at punter. The Bears still must commit to a kicker -- they signed Redford Jones and Chris Blewitt while also releasing Cody Parkey -- and sign a long snapper after declining an option on Patrick Scales.
