Lovie Smith may already be talking to Derrick Brooks as a possible replacement for Brian Urlacher, but the team is signing another linebacker — Tim Shaw.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the team will sign Shaw on Tuesday when the former Penn State player arrives at the team facility.
Shaw’s deal doesn’t mean that Brooks won’t land with Lovie. The Bears are trying to replace Urlacher and starting strong-side linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa, and probably will make another move at the position.
Shaw seems most likely to be slated for special teams duty.
