Jaye Howard has landed with a new team.

The former Chiefs defensive lineman signed a one-year deal with the Bears, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Thursday, according to a source informed of the agreement. The team later announced the deal.

Howard was cut by Kansas City two weeks ago and is still owed roughly $2.5 million by the organization.

The 28-year-old was placed on injured reserve in December after suffering a hip flexor in midseason. In four seasons in Kansas City, Howard recorded 7.5 sacks and 122 combined tackles.

Howard joins a Bears defensive line that looks roughly the same as last season's, anchored by Akiem Hicks and Eddie Goldman. If Howard recovers from his injury without incident, he should be the Week 1 starter at defensive end.



If hes healthy and can stay that way this is an outstanding pickup

Guh...more guys coming in already on IR. Seems like every comment about a bears pick up starts with "if he can stay healthy". Ok Fine, Ill just go into wait and see mode like all the other signings/picks.

Side note: I'm almost ready to take a swing at Greg Hardy at this point.

Finally we get a starting Caliber DE to pair with Hicks and Goldman.

When your team signs injury prone players (and you celebrate it), you can't complain (use as an excuse) about how all the injuries held the team back.

It's a one year deal, after the draft. He's hardly something they pursued. He fills a need... with how the draft went I'd much rather have him on the roster than not.
