The Chicago Bears have signed former Carolina Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen to a one-year contract.

They cut linebacker Lawrence Wilson.

Clausen was cut by the Panthers during the final roster cuts last August.

Clausen played collegiately at Notre Dame.

He was an ineffective player with the Panthers, who have Cam Newton entrenched as their starter.
