(670 The Score) The Bears appear set to bring their entire secondary back after a strong 2017 campaign.

Chicago and cornerback Prince Amukamara have agreed on a three-year deal, the Tribune's Brad Biggs reported Tuesday evening. Amukamara should again play opposite of Kyle Fuller, whom the Bears used the transition tag on last week, making it highly likely he'll return to Chicago. The Bears have also tendered restricted free-agent slot cornerback Bryce Callahan to secure him as well.

Amukamara, 28, had a strong 2017 season with the Bears after signing a one-year deal. He played in 14 games, starting 12, and recorded 48 tackles. He was a key piece of a top-10 defense overall and one that finished seventh against the pass.

Most of the new faces the Bears have added in free agency have come on the offensive side, as they've agreed to deals with receiver Allen Robinson, receiver Taylor Gabriel and tight end Trey Burton.
