Bears sign DT Jay Ratliff
Ratliff was released by the Cowboys in October due to a hamstring issue that has prevented the former Pro-Bowl tackle from playing yet this year. The four-time Pro-Bowler agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears on Saturday after meeting with Chicago, Kansas City and Miami over the previous week.
The Bears have lost two starting DTs this year with Henry Melton and Nate Collins both going down for the season. Ratliff is expected to be cleared to play for Chicago in two to four weeks.
