Amobi Okoye Working on a Deal to Re-Join Bears

Amobi Okoye is about to be back with the Bears according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The defensive lineman was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he’s finalizing a deal to return to the Bears, according to a league source.

A former 10th overall pick, Okoye posted his second-best sack total last season as a Bears reserve, and he signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Bucs during the offseason.

But, Okoye underwent a knee scope in June, and he missed the last three preseason games.

Bucs rookie head coach Greg Schiano apparently lost patience with Okoye, despite trouble with the team’s depth on the defensive line.
