Defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis, one of the biggest remaining free agents, has found a home with the Chicago Bears.
Ellis, 27, agreed to a one-year deal after compiling 173 tackles and 12.5 sacks in five seasons with the New Orleans Saints, who selected him seventh overall in 2008.
Ellis had also visited with the Detroit Lions and New England Patriots over the past few days.
