Bears Bring Back DL Idonije

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with defensive lineman Israel Idonije and are bringing him back for a second stint.

Idonije spent last season with Detroit after playing his first nine for Chicago. He had just 11 tackles and a half-sack with the Lions, but played some of the best ball of his career toward the end of his time with the Bears.

He had 20 ½ sacks over his last three seasons with Chicago. At 33, he doesn’t give the Bears the youth they’re seeking. But with his ability to play end or tackle, he does provide the versatility they’re looking for as they revamp a struggling defense.
