The Chicago Bears have been among the busiest teams since this years NFL free agency period opened up earlier in the week.
Despite not making any huge signings of star players or splashing the cash on mega money the contracts, the Bears have slowly gone about their business strengthening and adding depth to their defense that had a lot of needs to fill from a poor 2013.
The 28-year old young recently visited with the Jacksonville Jaguars and was definitely an interesting defensive end in free agency, when taking into account his age and the fact that he has showed some flashes of brilliance during his time in Detroit.
Young was selected by the Detroit Lions in the seventh round, as the 213th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Young is the second defensive end signed by the Bears in free agency. They picked up Lamarr Houston from the Oakland Raiders and now possess a much improved pass rush from 2013, despite releasing Julius Peppers.
Young started 15 of the 16 games he played in last season for the Lions. He recorded a combined total of 47 tackles and managed 3 sacks and 5 passes defended on the season.
