LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears worked Monday to shore up depth on the defensive line by bringing back defensive tackle Amobi Okoye with a one-year contract, in addition to waiving Brian Price.
A sixth-year veteran, Okoye traveled Saturday to the team's facilities after he was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He passed a physical coming off arthroscopic knee surgery in June that kept him off the field for Tampa Bay's last three preseason games. While the problematic knee would seem a concern for the Bears, it's unlikely the club would have elected to bring Okoye back if it's an issue the club expects to linger.
The Bears signed veteran defensive tackle Amobi Okoye to a one-year deal.
