The Bears added another solid player on defense Friday, as the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the team has come to terms on a one-year deal with former Rams LB Pisa Tinoisamoa. He led the Rams in tackles a season ago, and was let go by the team a few weeks back. Here’s the Sun-Times take on the signing:
Lovie Smith has a lot of faith in the play caller for his defense this season and the unit just added another part as linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa agreed to terms with the Bears on a one-year deal. Tinoisamoa, who the Rams tried unsuccessfully to trade, is just the latest addition in what has been a busy offseason for general manager Jerry Angelo, who has proven the Bears are more versatile when it comes to constructing the roster, dispelling the notion it is a draft-driven franchise.
It’s a solid move for the Bears, as they add another veteran who can come in and make plays, or even come off the bench and add some depth to a defense that has added and subtracted some players after a down 2008 season.
