Tony Moeaki is coming home.
The Bears announced on Thursday that they have signed the former Wheaton Warrenville South standout.
Moeaki attended Bears minicamp on a tryout and impressed the coaching staff enough to secure a deal.
The 29-year-old Moeaki appeared in 11 games for the Atlanta Falcons last season and recorded three catches for 58 yards and a touchdown. Moeaki was originally selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third-round (93rd overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Iowa. He has 91 receptions for 1,201 yards and six touchdowns in 48 career games.
Moeaki is expected to provide tight end depth and compete for a backup spot behind starter Zach Miller.
The Bears also announced the signing of defensive lineman Marquis Jackson, the twin brother of former Denver Broncos Super Bowl champion and current Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Malik Jackson. Marquis Jackson entered the NFL in 2013 with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Portland State, but has not appeared in a regular-season NFL game.
In corresponding roster moves, the Bears waived defensive lineman Kenton Adeyemi and linebacker Don Cherry.
