Trey Burton expected to sign with the Bears

The Bears have agreed to a deal with former Eagles tight end Trey Burton. More
Mike Garofolo and Adam Schefter were the first to report the deal along with the details. For the Gators, Burton played tight end, wide receiver, fullback, and quarterback.
The deal can be worth up to $32 million.
Fans around the National Football League best know him for his role in the "Philly Special" play in Super Bowl LII, where he threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles before the end of the first half. In those two seasons, he registered 60 receptions for 575 yards and six touchdowns, with a minimal number of starts.
Signing with the Bears should allow Burton to get more consistent playing time than he did in Philadelphia. In addition to Burton, the Bears added Allen Robinson to their talent-bare pass-catching corps on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old caught 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns last year, and notoriously threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Nick Foles in the Eagles' title game victory. Burton joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2014, carved out a role on special teams and then blossomed as a unsafe offensive playmaker the past two seasons under coach Doug Pederson.
Some casual fans may have never heard of Burton, and that's likely because he's been a backup tight end on the Eagles the last few years.
It turns out his destination is Chicago, where Burton caught his first career touchdown pass from Carson Wentz in 2016.
