Chicago Bears linebacker Blake Costanzo certainly appreciates his new team's appreciation for special teams.

"If they didn't, I wouldn't have a job," Costanzo said. "So it's awesome to come here and have them put an emphasis on (special teams) and value it the way they do."

Knowing they'd potentially lose Pro Bowl special-teams ace Corey Graham in free agency, the Bears targeted Costanzo, who was coming off a strong 2011 campaign with the San Francisco 49ers. In addition to the 17 stops made on special teams, Costanzo made four more in the playoffs, while playing a role (forced fumble and fumble recovery) in San Francisco's victory over the New Orleans Saints.
