(Chicago, IL)  --  The Bears agreed to terms with former Detroit Lions defensive end Willie Young on a three-year deal.  Young is guaranteed four of his nine-million-dollar contract.  Young was drafted out of NC State by the Lions and last season turned in a three sack, 47 tackle season while recovering two fumbles.  Domenik Hixon signed a one-year contract with the Bears to provide depth at the receiver position and compete for a special teams return position.  Hixon enters his ninth season in the NFL with Chicago being his fourth team.  Hixon caught only seven passes for 55 yards and a score last season in Carolina but had success with the Giants, catching 102 passes for more than 1,400 yards and six touchdowns in his five years there.
