By ESPN.com staff


CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears signed former Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams to a one-year contract on Friday, a source confirmed to ESPNChicago.com.

After offering longtime middle linebacker Brian Urlacher a one-year, $2 million contract that he refused, the Bears got Williams for a base salary of $900,000, the Chicago Tribune reported. He can earn a maximum of $1.75 million if he reaches all incentives.
