The Chicago Bears announced Saturday that they have signed former New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes who worked out for the team earlier this week. Per ESPN
Holmes, 30, caught 23 passes for 456 yards and one touchdown last season in 11 games for the Jets, who released him in March. He played in just four games in 2012 before suffering a Lisfranc injury.
His best season in the NFL came with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009 when he posted a career-high 79 receptions for 1,248 yards. Holmes was also named MVP of Super Bowl XLIII.
The Bears terminated the contract of veteran receiver Eric Weems to make room for Holmes on the roster.
