Brad Biggs announced that the Chicago Bears have signed DE Alex Brown to a one-year deal, and that Brown will retire as a Chicago Bear on Thursday, August 9th.

Brown was a fourth round pick by the Bears in the 2002 draft, and was with Chicago from 2002 to 2009. A fan favorite, it was tough to see him "replaced" by Mark Anderson and then finally moving on to New Orleans for his final year. Brown recorded 43.5 sacks and 373 tackles in his tenure as a Chicago Bear.

Update: Per Larry Mayers, it is a one-day deal (which makes more sense), and not a one-year deal as previously reported.
