The Bears have signed safety Josh Bullocks to a one-year contract, a league source said.
Bullocks gets $525,000 guaranteed, and will add depth to the secondary immediately.
The hope is that he can win the starting free safety job. Bullocks started his first three seasons in New Orelans.
He will be at the veteran minicamp next week and will begin competing with Craig Steltz, a fourth-round pick last year.
