BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears signed receiver Rashied Davis to a one-year contract to replace the retired Devin Thomas.

The Bears announced the moves on Monday, while placing Thomas on the reserve/left team list.

Davis spent his first six years with Chicago and played for Detroit last season. He has 92 receptions for 1,095 yards and five touchdowns in 103 games to go with 72 kickoff returns for 1,400 yards and 69 special teams tackles.

Thomas was trying to make the squad as a reserve receiver and special teams player after signing a one-year deal with the Bears in March.

A 2008 second-round draft pick by the Washington Redskins, he was cut in 2010 and made three catches last season with the Giants.
