Bears sign veteran linebacker Dan Skuta to one-year deal

(Jim Steve/USA TODAY Sports)

Veteran linebacker Dan Skuta has signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears.

The 31-year-old Skuta — released by Jacksonville last month — has appeared in 112 games, including 26 with the Jaguars. Skuta signed a five-year contract worth $20.5 million in 2015 that included a little more than $8 million guaranteed.

He totaled 55 tackles and 1½ sacks in two seasons in Jacksonville. His role was marginalized after the drafting of linebacker Myles Jack last year. Skuta previously played for San Francisco (2013-14) and Cincinnati (2009-12).

The Bears announced the signing on Monday. Chicago is coming off a last-place finish in the NFC North at 3-13.
