Lake Forest, Illinois-The Bears added to the depth on their offensive line Monday by signing veteran tackle Jonathan Scott.
Scott has played six NFL seasons with the Lions, Bills and Steelers. He started 14 games for the Steelers the past two seasons. They cut him July 19th.
Lovie Smith says the Bears wanted another big body on the line. "I think as you talk with [general manager] Phil [Emery] what we've always said is we'll continue to just improve our roster at all times," said coach Lovie Smith. "It's as simple as that. We had an opportunity to get a good football player in here. We're excited about him becoming a Bear."
