LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have re-signed long snapper Patrick Scales to a one-year contract.

Scales played in all 16 games last season — his fourth in Chicago — after missing the 2017 season with a knee injury. He has appeared in 39 games over five years with the Baltimore Ravens (2014) and Bears (2015-18).

The team announced the move on Wednesday. Chicago won the NFC North at 12-4 last season.
