Former Philadelphia Eagles safety Chris Prosinski has found a new home. The 28-year-old defensive back has officially signed with the 0-3 Chicago Bears. Clearly, the Bears' season is saved.

Prosinski was released by Philadelphia earlier this month during final roster cuts. The Eagles originally signed Prosinski, who former played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, halfway through the 2014 season. Despite only playing in eight games, Prosinski finished fourth overall in special teams tackles. He quietly had a good training camp and preseason, so it was a little bit of a surprise when the team cut him, but now he's back in the NFL.

The Eagles decided to keep Chris Maragos and Jerome Couplin instead of Prosinski. Through three games, Couplin has made two special teams tackles along with one assisted tackle. Maragos has one assisted tackle and has also contributed as the team's nickel safety when Malcolm Jenkins moves down to the slot.
