The Bears found their replacement for P Brad Maynard, agreeing to sign former Jaguars P Adam Podlesh.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported that the Bears will sign Podlesh to a five-year deal. Podlesh confirmed the news on his Twitter account.

Podlesh, a fourth-round pick in 2007, put 26 punts inside opponents' 20-yard line in 2010.
