Free Agent DE/DT Israel Idonije Still A Possibility For Bears
Free-agent pass rusher Israel Idonije has received interest from the Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans, but no team visit has been reported for the versatile defensive lineman.
Bears general manager Phil Emery reiterated Tuesday that he still would like to re-sign Idonije. Nothing is believed to be imminent, however, according to the Chicago Tribune.
While Idonije is on the wrong side of 30, he's coming off a career-best season with 7.5 sacks and solid play against the run. As is the case with other aging pass rushers such as free agents Dwight Freeney and John Abraham, he's having trouble finding a team willing to meet his asking price.

I wouldn't mind resigning Idonije for depth on the d-line since he can play both end and tackle but at a reasonable price.
