Bears sign Akiem Hicks
The Chicago Bears signed veteran defensive lineman Akiem Hicks. Hicks, 26, had 23 tackles and two sacks last season for the New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints. He played for the Saints when Bears general manager Ryan Pace was working there. At 6-foot-5, 324 pounds, Hicks adds another big body alongside nose tackle Eddie Goldman.
