Guard Matt Slauson signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears.
Slauson started 48 of the past 51 games for the New York Jets, who selected the 6-foot-5, 315 pounder in the sixth round out of Nebraska in 2009. He wasn't charged with allowing a single sack in 2012.
"We are excited that Matt will be a Bear," Bears general manager Phil Emery said. "He brings physical play and smarts to the offensive guard position and to the offensive line as an overall unit. His size, strength and power will allow him to challenge for either of the starting guard positions."
