Former Florida TE Trey Burton agrees to monster deal with Chicago Bears

Burton has agreed to a four-year contract worth up to $32 million, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported.

Burton is coming off consecutive solid seasons operating as Zach Ertz's backup with the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2016, he caught 37 passes for 327 yards and 1 touchdown. He made five grabs for 71 yards and two touchdowns with Ertz sidelined due to a concussion, flashing his playmaking upside when thrust into a bigger role. An average annual value of $8 million would place him among the highest-paid tight ends in football.

The man who will be catching passes from Mitchell Trubisky threw the touchdown pass to Nick Foles in this year's Super Bowl, you'll recall, and he'll take that highlight to his grave. Though Philadelphia valued Burton's versatility and contributions to the offseason in a limited role, the former Florida Gator performed well enough last season to earn a lucrative contract on the open market. Now, the question will be whether he can turn his flashes of potential with the Eagles into something more substantial on a weekly basis. After hiring Matt Nagy - a young, aggressive offensive mind in the mold of Sean McVay - he got his second-year quarterback an additional weapon by giving tight end Trey Burton a deal to steal him away from the Eagles.
