The Bears terminated the contract of veteran wide receiver Earl Bennett yesterday. Bennett, who's spent his entire six-year career with Chicago, appeared in 15 games last season and hauled in 32 passes for 243 yards and four touchdowns. He has 185 receptions for 2,277 yards and 12 TDs in his career.
The Bears agreed to terms on a one-year contract with defensive lineman Israel Idonije. Idonije played nine years with the Bears before moving to the Lions last season. In a reserve role, he recorded 11 tackles and a half-sack for Detroit in 2013.
