(670 The Score) Receiver Josh Bellamy is back with the Bears, signing his tender from the team Wednesday, according to his agent.

Given an original-round tender as a restricted free agent, Bellamy is back with the Bears on a one-year deal that will mark his fifth season in Chicago.

Bellamy has 62 receptions for 882 yards and four touchdowns during his career, with all of that coming the last three seasons with the Bears. He had provided depth at receiver -- playing a larger role as the Bears have experienced injuries at the position -- while playing a key role on special teams.

The Bears are still waiting on restricted free agent Cam Meredith, who has visited with the Colts, Ravens and Saints but has yet to sign an offer sheet.
