The Chicago Bears have added more depth to their linebacker unit by signing free agent linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis to a one-year contract.
Pierre-Louis has played in 57 career games with the Jets (2018), Chiefs (2017) and Seahawks (2014-16). He has recorded 68 tackles, including 42 solo, and 23 more on special teams to go along with 1.0 sack, 3.0 tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble, a fumble recovery and three passes defensed.
His best season was in 2017 with the Chiefs. He had 35 tackles helping the Chiefs win the AFC West Division.
Last season with the Jets he was suspended for the first game of the season for violating the NFL’s Substance Abuse Policy. He played nine games after that before finishing the season on Injured Reserve.
Pierre-Louis was a fourth-round selection by the Seahawks in the 2014 draft out of Boston College.
