Restricted free-agent Jamar Williams signed his one-year tender with the Bears on Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed.
Anybody else feel a little sorry for the fifth-year linebacker who seems to play well when he gets on the field, which happens only rarely? Williams had 19 tackles against St. Louis in a rare start late last season but will be relegated to special-teams duty once again unless Lance Briggs gets injured. That was the third most tackles by a Bears player in a game since 1995, by the way.
Not that Williams doesn't make an impact on special teams. He does. The former fourth-round pick had 10 tackles for the Bears last season.
