Philadelphia Eagles: Trey Burton will be missed on offense

Trey Burton talks free agency and what he wants from the team he signs with

Venice High graduate Trey Burton got the payday he was seeking. The Bears will sign the former Philadelphia Eagle to a four-year, $32 million deal once the league year officially opens. Burton earned $2.81 million last season after signing a one-year contract in April with the Eagles.

This is a massive contract for an undrafted free agent (2014) who had 63 catches in 61 career regular-season games for the Eagles.

Burton, who played college football at the University of Florida, became a Philadelphia sports legend at this year's Super Bowl. In 2016, he caught 37 passes for 327 yards and 1 touchdown.

The Bears are adding playmakers for young quarterback Mitch Trubisky. As disappointing as it was for Eagles fans to see one of their beloved tight ends leave for the Bears, they'll always appreciate what he did to help bring the team their first Super Bowl title, especially during the historic Philly Special play. The Bears presumably hope 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen will develop into their top in-line/blocking tight end, with Burton serving as a flex receiver.

Due largely to the presence of veteran tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek, Burton was only on the field for 27 percent of the offensive snaps last season, but he made the most of his opportunities, hauling in 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns.
