The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with DT Sedrick Ellis on a one-year contract…
All eyes will be on Ellis in training camp
Last season, the Chicago Bears signed former first-round defensive tackle Amobi Okoye just weeks before the start of the regular season. The club was hoping Okoye, who picked up 4.0 sacks for the Bears in 2011, could again serve as a quality backup to Henry Melton. Yet Okoye failed to recapture the magic and was cut in Week 13. This offseason, the Bears followed a similar path by signing Sedrick Ellis, the seventh overall pick in the 2008 draft, a few days before the start of minicamp. The difference this time around is that Ellis will have a full training camp to show whether he belongs on the final 53-man roster. It will be one of the most important performances to watch in Bourbonnais, as the Bears are perilously thin at the defensive tackle position. If Ellis, who struggled the last two seasons in New Orleans, can regain the form that once made him one of the most coveted interior defensive linemen in the nation, then Chicago's defense can rest easy on a number of fronts...
