Transactions roundup: Zach Miller, Bears agree to deal

Zach Miller is staying in Chicago.

The Bears announced Monday that the veteran tight end has agreed on a two-year contract with the team. A source informed of the deal told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that the deal is worth $6 million with up to $2 million available in incentives.

Miller, 31, is coming off a breakout season with the Bears, his first in Chicago. In the season's final nine games, Miller was tied for fourth among tight ends in touchdown receptions (five) and seventh in receiving yards (40). For the season, he set career-highs in catches (34), receiving yards (439), yards per catch (12.9) and touchdowns (five).

Rapoport reported last month that the Bears would likely try to move tight end Martellus Bennett this offseason. That speaks to the team's belief in Miller, who could be primed for another nice season.
