Bears Sign Trevor Scott

The Bears have signed free agent defensive end Trevor Scott to a one-year contract, the team announced today (via Twitter). Scott had been available since being released by the Buccaneers in October.

Scott, 29, started his career in Oakland before joining the Patriots and Bucs in the past two seasons. The former sixth-round pick hasn’t been a full-time starter since 2010, though he contributed three sacks as a reserve for New England in 2012.

Since Scott likely represents no more than than defensive line depth for the Bears, he’ll likely be in line for a minimum salary deal. For a player with his experience, that’d be a $730K salary for Scott, with a $570K cap hit for the team.
