06:51 PM ET 06.25 | The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms with former Chicago Bears defensive lineman Israel Idonije, the team said Tuesday. Idonije, 32, spent nine seasons with the Bears and recorded 28.5 sacks. He was a regular starter at defensive end the last three seasons. Idonije told the Tribune he was prepared to start a new chapter after the Bears approached him with an offer that was lower than anticipated. He also generated interest from the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans before agreeing to terms with the Lions.

I agree. Must be born out of sheer laziness. Since you see the other team twice a year you consider your player due diligence done

Damn good pick up by the Lions. A can do player for Chicago. With quality minutes he can be a difference maker.
