The Bears re-signed safety DeAndre Houston-Carson to a one-year contract, the team announced Thursday.

Houston-Carson, 27, is a 2016 sixth-round draft pick from William & Mary. He played in all 16 games each of the past two seasons. Over five seasons, he has appeared in 64 games as a backup in the defensive backfield and on special teams.

 

His 91 defensive snaps last season were a career high. He was third on the team with eight special-teams tackles.

Notably, he made two huge plays in back-to-back games last season. He broke up Tom Brady's final pass when the Bears downed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5. A week later, he notched his first career interception against Teddy Bridgewater and the Carolina Panthers, which sealed that victory as well.
