Bears Agree to Deal with LB James Anderson



    The Chicago Bears aren’t wasting any time.

    After the Bears recently signed former Bronco D.J. Williams as a replacement for their beloved Brian Urlacher, the team continued to build their linebacker setup and agreed to a one-year contract with former Carolina Panther James Anderson, the team announced Sunday.

    The 6-foot-2, 235-pound linebacker joined the Panthers in the 2006 NFL Draft out of Virginia Tech. He started in 53 games over seven seasons and appeared in 94 overall, the most by any linebacker in Carolina franchise history.

    He set a Panthers single-game record last year with 20 tackles against the New York Giants.

    The Bears also agreed to a one-year contract with Arlington Heights-native Tom Zbikowski Saturday.

    The distinguished Notre Dame safety started 11 games for the Indianapolis Colts last season. He was reportedly released after the Colts signed former Pro Bowl safety LaRon Landry earlier this month.

    The former Buffalo Grove High School student has appeared in 64 games with 25 starts over five seasons. He recorded 59 special teams tackles, 16 punt returns for 101 yards and 20 kickoff returns for 428 yards.

    Though the Bears already have prominent safeties like Major Wright, Zbikowski could come in handy in the special teams.
