Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday morning, is finalizing a deal to sign with the Chicago Bears, a source confirmed.

The Bears have been looking for depth at defensive tackle and found some in defensive tackle Brian Price, who they acquired from Tampa Bay earlier this summer via trade.

Okoye had signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Buccaneers.
