It's been a steady rise for the Florida native, who signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2014 and played a niche role in his first two years.
He gives quarterback Mitch Trubisky yet another weapon; the Bears agreed to sign receiver Allen Robinson earlier Tuesday. He posted 37 catches for 327 yards and one touchdown in 2016 and 23 receptions for 248 yards and five scores in 2017.
At just 24, Robinson still has a ton of upside and should be incentivized to have a great few years in Chicago as he'll hit free agency again in the prime of his career if he does.
In two seasons with the Eagles, Burton was a reliable and productive option teaming up with No. 1 tight end Zach Ertz.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton, the dependable pass catcher who threw a touchdown to Nick Foles in last month's Super Bowl victory, will sign with the Chicago Bears in free agency, according to several reports. This move nearly certainly means the Bears plan to cut Dion Sims, who they just signed to a "three-year, 18 million" contract last offseason.
