After enjoying a successful 2015 season with the Chicago Bears, cornerback Tracy Porter will return to the team on a new deal.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that Porter's new contract is a three-year deal worth $16.5 million.

Porter confirmed the move:

Porter missed all but three games in 2014 while dealing with shoulder and hamstring injuries. As a result, the Washington Redskins cut him last year.

The Bears then signed the 29-year-old to a one-year contract. He experienced a strong bounce-back campaign, recording 35 combined tackles and intercepting one pass. Pro Football Focus, however, graded him as the worst of Chicago's three regular cornerbacks.

This year's free-agent market isn't flush with depth at the position, though, which means Porter may have been valued more highly than he would've been otherwise.
