 CHICAGO (AP) - Pro Bowl defensive tackle Henry Melton has accepted the Chicago Bears' $8.45 million tender after being hit with the franchise player tag.
Melton's agent Jordan Woy posted Friday on Twitter that they will still try to negotiate a long-term contract before the July 15 deadline. The Bears placed the franchise tag on Melton on March 1.
The 26-year-old Melton made his first Pro Bowl last season, tying for third among defensive tackles with six sacks while forcing two fumbles.
