(670 The Score) The Bears are set to sign receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, according to multiple reports Tuesday evening.

The deal is for two years and worth up to $10 million, with $5 million guaranteed, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported.

Patterson, 27, is fresh off a season in which he won a Super Bowl with the Patriots. He had 21 catches for 247 yards and three touchdowns and added 42 carries for 228 rushing yards and a touchdown in 15 games. Patterson also averaged 28.8 yards on 23 kickoff returns.

The Bears lost receiver Josh Bellamy to the Jets in free agency and are expected to let receiver Kevin White walk. Patterson projects to fill a versatile, hybrid role with the Bears, just as he did for the Patriots.
