According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bears, after deciding not to re-sign longtime linebacker Brian Urlacher just a few days ago, have signed former Broncos LB D.J. Williams. The deal is for one year and worth $900,000 dollars plus incentives.
Speaking from a Bears point of view, this move is a very smart one. The deal that Urlacher rejected was for a year and $2 million. Instead of signing a guy who wouldn't produce, they sign a better player for $300,000 dollars less. Williams was pretty good last year in Denver and all he will do in Chicago is make the team better. This deal doesn't involve any risk and makes their defense look much more threatening.
