The Bears on Friday re-signed defensive tackle Nick Williams to a one-year contract.
Williams, 26, appeared in two games last year, recording two tackles and one tackle-for-loss in a Week 9 win over the Bills. He also played in the season opener in Green Bay.
Williams originally joined the Bears last year after spending his first three NFL seasons with the Chiefs (2014-16) and Dolphins (2016), appearing in 28 games. The 6-4, 310-pounder played a career-high 14 contests with Kansas City in 2015.
Williams is the third free agent the Bears have re-signed, following right tackle Bobby Massie and tight end Ben Braunecker. Four Bears free agents have joined other teams: Safety Adrian Amos (Packers), receivers Joshua Bellamy (Jets) and Kevin White (Cardinals) and guard Eric Kush (Browns).
Eight Bears unrestricted free agents remain unsigned: Nickel back Bryce Callahan, tight end Daniel Brown, outside linebacker Aaron Lynch, punter Patrick O’Donnell, fullback Michael Burton, running back Benny Cunningham, offensive lineman Bryan Witzmann and cornerback Marcus Williams.
