Bears DE Anderson signs tender

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Restricted free agent defensive end Mark Anderson has signed his one-year tender offer from the Chicago Bears.

Anderson has 130 tackles and 21.5 sacks in four years but has struggled since an eye-opening rookie season in 2006.

He had 12 sacks that year, the most by a Bears rookie and the most by a Chicago player since Richard Dent's 13.5 in 1993, while helping Chicago reach the Super Bowl.
