BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (July 23, 2005) -- The Chicago Bears agreed to a one-year contract with Marc Edwards, hoping the fullback can plug a hole created by injuries.
The veteran spent the past two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, starting five of the 13 games he appeared in.
The deal was reached July 22 and is contingent on Edwards passing a physical.
Edwards has 405 yards rushing on 124 attempts and 157 receptions for 1,235 yards in eight seasons. The Bears' top two fullbacks, Bryan Johnson and Jason McKie, are sidelined for the start of training camp with injuries.
