CHICAGO (CBS) — Free agent wide receiver Roy Williams is coming to the Bears, according to reports Friday morning.

Williams was released by the Dallas Cowboys Thursday and the Bears are in need of a wide receiver with size. Reports surfaced later in the day that the Bears were pursuing him.

Citing Adam Schefter of ESPN, Pro Football Talk reported Friday morning that Williams had reached a deal to join the Bears.

Other sources, including the Chicago Tribune, have also reported the deal.

The Chicago Sun-Times’ Sean Jensen quoted a league source Friday morning as saying the Bears were set to sign Williams. Jensen points out that Williams’ best season was with the Detroit Lions in 2006 under Mike Martz, now the offensive coordinator for the Bears.
