The Bears have reached a new deal with second-year cornerback Al Louis-Jean.
Chicago has signed Louis-Jean to a two-year contract, the team said Wednesday.
The 21-year-old Louis-Jean played nine games in 2014, recording nine tackles. A Boston College product, Louis-Jean (6-1, 187) joined Chicago as an undrafted free agent last May.
At the moment, the Bears have seven cornerbacks on the roster. However, stalwart Charles Tillman is slated to be an unrestricted free agent.
In another transaction Wednesday, the Bears announced the addition of Rick Smith as assistant strength coach.
