(CBS) — The Bears signed versatile defensive lineman Israel Idonije to a one-year contract Tuesday

The 33-year-old Idonije played for Chicago for 10 seasons before he left for Detroit, where he had 11 tackles and half a sack last year. He can play defensive end or defensive tackle.

The Bears have already added ends Lamarr Houston and Willie Young in the first week of free agency but are continuing to search for depth on the defensive line.
