Bears Sign Free Agent DE Austen Lane

Austen Lane

The Bears on Monday signed free-agent defensive end Austen Lane, his agent tweeted, reuniting him with defensive coordinator Mel Tucker, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. The Bears confirmed that Lane was signed to a one-year deal.

Lane played for the Jaguars from 2010-12, when Tucker was the defensive coordinator there. The Jaguars’ fifth-round pick in 2010 has three sacks in 30 career games.

He played in two games for the Lions last November, but the Lions released him, making him available before the unrestricted free agency period begins March 11.
