| No Comments | No TrackBacks

With nearly $21 million in available cap room, the Bears put some of it to use Friday when they extended the contract of defensive lineman Israel Idonije for two seasons.

The deal carries through the 2011 season and is worth $7 million in new money. Idonije, who was set to earn $1.75 million this season, will get $3 million guaranteed in the deal. It wasn't the only business the Bears got done at Halas Hall Friday morning. The club also announced the signing of six of its nine draft picks.

The draft picks signed are: D.J. Moore, Johnny Knox, Marcus Freeman, Al Afalava, Lance Louis and Derek Kinder.

Check back soon for more information.
