Boggs, Taylor (C)

Posted April 09, 2013 @ 8:28 p.m.
The Bears announced Tuesday they reached a one-year deal with Boggs.
Boogs, a Humboldt State product who entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets in 2011, has not played in a regular-season game.

Moore, Kyle (DE)

Posted April 09, 2013 @ 8:27 p.m.
The Bears announced Tuesday they signed Moore to a one-year contract.
The 6-6, 263-pound Moore spent his first two seasons with Tampa Bay and the past two with Buffalo. He started seven of the 12 games he played in last year and had a career-high 24 tackles and three sacks.

Fluellen, Andre (DT)

Posted April 09, 2013 @ 8:26 p.m.
The Bears announced Tuesday they signed Fluellen to a one-year contract.
The 6-foot-2, 302-pound Fluellen has played in 56 games with six starts over five seasons with Detroit (2008-12) and Miami (2012). He appeared in five games and made six tackles with the Lions and Dolphins last season.

McCown, Josh (QB)

Posted March 29, 2013 @ 5:50 p.m.
The Chicago Bears re-signed McCown, agreeing to a one-year contract Friday.
The 33-year-old McCown finished the last two years with the Bears, joining them each season in November after starter Jay Cutler was injured. In 10 NFL seasons with Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Carolina and Chicago, he has started 33 of 50 games and completed 645 passes for 6,998 yards and 37 touchdowns.

Slauson, Matt (G)

Posted March 29, 2013 @ 4:04 p.m.
The Chicago Bears and former New York Jets guard Slauson have agreed to a 1-year contract. The team announced the deal on Friday.
Bears General Manager Phil Emery says Slauson's size and strength will make him a challenger for a starting guard position. Slauson, 6-5, 315-pounds, started 48 of 51 games with the Jets. New York drafted him out of Nebraska in 2009. Last season he didn't allow any sacks. Slauson was listed on New York's injury report with a knee injury last season.
