The Chicago Bears added to their quickly depleting defensive line depth today, by signing a player they had in for a try out during their rookie mini camp. We gave you a little bit on Josh Williams back in May, when we spotlighted the mini camp participants.

Josh Williams (6' 4", 257), Kansas DE - A 12 game starter last year at Kansas, showed 4.7 speed at his pro day.

And in case you were wondering, Williams was issued #72.

Keep it here on Windy City Gridiron for a full practice recap that will post right around lunch time.
