Sports Minute: Bears sign veteran safety Gipson to 1-year contract
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears signed veteran safety Tashaun Gipson to a one-year contract Friday. Gipson has intercepted 23 passes and returned three for touchdowns over eight seasons with Cleveland, Jacksonville and Houston. He was released Tuesday by the Texans after signing a three-year, $22.5 million prior to last season. The 29-year-old Gipson had 55 tackles and three interceptions in his lone season with Houston. He started 14 games before landing on injured reserve because of a back injury. In Chicago, he will play with two-time Pro Bowl safety Eddie Jackson. The Bears finished 8-8 last season and missed the playoffs after winning the NFC North at 12-4 in 2018.
