The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with former Notre Dame and Carolina Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen.

The move was announced Thursday.

Clausen appeared in 13 games for Carolina from 2010 to 2013 after starring at Notre Dame. He made 10 starts as a rookie and threw for 1,558 yards with three touchdowns and nine interceptions in a 2-14 season. The Panthers drafted Cam Newton the following April.

Clausen was waived/injured last August.

Besides signing Clausen, the Bears waived linebacker Lawrence Wilson.
