Colin Kaepernick and Broncos: Good or bad match?
Wednesday March 9th, 2016

The Chicago Bears are signing linebacker Danny Trevathan, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Trevathan played in 15 games for the Super Bowl-winning Broncos last season, recording 109 combined tackles. Trevathan was an integral part of the defense that helped carry Denver to a championship, providing solid play in the second level.

Denver selected Trevathan in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. In his career, the linebacker has 282 tackles, three sacks and four forced fumbles.

Chicago can use Trevathan’s help, particularly in the run game. The Bears were the 11th-worst at stopping the run last season, allowing over 115 yards per game.

Chicago’s signing of Trevathan reunites him with John Fox, who coached the linebacker in Denver.
