LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears announced they've agreed to terms Wednesday with former Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings on a one-year deal.

Terms of the contract weren't immediately disclosed.

Jennings, 25, started all 16 games last season at safety for the Packers, but never produced a turnover. Jennings did contribute 74 tackles last season, but apparently he wasn't a priority for the Packers in free agency as the club wanted to upgrade at that position.

Green Bay declined to extend a tender offer to Jennings, a restricted free agent, who despite starting the club's last 26 games only intercepted one pass.
