The Chicago Bears signed outside linebacker Willie Young to a two-year contract extension on Saturday.

 

Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

 

The 30-year-old Young signed with the Bears two years ago after spending his first four seasons with division-rival Detroit. He had a career-high 10 sacks that year before tearing his Achilles tendon in December, but bounced back to play in 15 games with 6 1/2 sacks last season.

 

The 6-foot-4, 260-pound Young even made his first career interception last year.
