Willie Young agrees to three-year deal with Bears

Willie Young agrees to three-year deal with Bears

Defensive end Willie Young's time with the Detroit Lions has come to an end. He's not joining the Jacksonville Jaguars after visiting them this week, though. Instead, Young is joining the Chicago Bears, meaning he will still get to play at Ford Field once a season.

Young's deal with the Bears is for three years. 

As a full-time starter last season, Young had 47 tackles, 3.0 sacks and 5 passes defended. He followed up an outstanding preseason with a good regular season, and he displayed some consistency after showing a lot of potential in 2011, when he had 3.0 sacks in a limited role.
