Report: Bears Agree to Contract with Former Cowboys Pro Bowl DT Jay Ratliff

ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that the Chicago Bears have signed former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff to a one-year deal.

Werder later corrected himself on the timing of the Bears and Cowboys game:

Ratliff visited the Bears and Chiefs earlier this week and chose the Bears, supposedly in part for the chance to stick it to his former team:

Sure, whatever it takes, I guess.  So Jay Cutler and Julius Peppers were the equivalent of Benny the Bull showing up at the airport to woo Ratliff, huh?

As we noted earlier in the week, Ratliff is still probably a couple of weeks away from being ready to play, but if he, Cutler and Briggs can return late in the season, you never know.

In the meantime, the Bears need to keep the ship afloat for the next few weeks until they get everyone healthy.  They face the Packer on Monday Night Football this week without Cutler and Briggs.  And supposedly Ratliff.
