Recently released Bengals player signed by Bears
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears have signed veteran defensive lineman Jamaal Anderson to a one-year contract with defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis deciding to retire rather than report to training camp.
Drafted eighth overall by Atlanta in 2007, the 6-foot-6, 280-pound Anderson has started 48 of 77 games played in six seasons with the Falcons (2007-10), Indianapolis (2011) and Cincinnati (2012).
Anderson was placed on injured reserve by the Bengals after tearing a quad tendon in the second game of the season against Cleveland.
Ellis, a first-round pick by New Orleans in 2008, played five seasons with the Saints before signing a one-year deal with Chicago on July 12. He started all 16 games last season and recorded 36 tackles and broke up one pass.
The Bears announced the moves Thursday.
