The Chicago Bears announced Monday afternoon they have signed Joshua Morgan, a Washington native who played the last two seasons for the Redskins.

Morgan, entering his seventh season, signed a one-year deal but financial terms were not disclosed. After leading the Redskins with 48 receptions for 510 yards and two touchdowns in 2012, his role was diminished significantly last season, and he caught just 20 passes for 214 yards and was kept out of the end zone. He was inactive for two games and played only 33.7 percent of all snaps.

He also struggled as a return specialist, weaving in and out of the rotation as a kickoff returner and being removed as the punt returner, a role he had never previously held, after five games.

Morgan will compete with Marquess Wilson to be the Bears‘ third receiver behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
