3. Travis Homer will help Chicago Bears on special teams

Beyond helping out on special teams, the Chicago Bears are getting a solid upgrade in pass protection as well. Throughout his career he has 725 special teams snaps, so yes, he plays more on special teams than he has on offense.

He is not returning punts and kicks, but he is on the punt and kick return units. He also was chasing down punts and kicks. He is a four-phase special teams option.

The Chicago Bears need guys that can provide in bits and pieces on offense while also being core special teams' options. The Chicago Bears getting the value of both phases at the price they did makes sense. Beyond that, this locks him onto the roster.
