The Chicago Bears have signed DT Sedrick Ellis to a 1-year contract. Ellis was one of the best available defensive linemen available on the market, but that could just show how thin the market was.

Ellis has been a disappointment with the Saints. The Bears are hoping to bring some life into him.

Not sure why they didn’t just re-sign Israel Idonije for the defensive line. He was a good player for their defense and knows the players on the roster.
