Tom Pelissero reports that the Chicago Bears have signed former Lions DE Willie Young agreed to a three-year contract.
- Pelissero adds that Young receives $9 million in total with $3.95 million guaranteed to go along with a $2 million signing bonus.
Young, 28, recently visited with the Jaguars and was one of the more interesting defensive end free agents given his age and the fact that he has flashed some ability in the past.
Last year, he appeared in all 16 games and totaled 47 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles. We have him listed as the No. 64 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
