The Bears announced Friday morning the signing of offensive lineman Nate Chandler.

Both Chandler and free agent offensive lineman Jake Long worked out for the Bears on Thursday. Ultimately the team went with Chandler, who missed all of 2015 with a knee injury. He started 11 games at right tackle in 2015 and eight games at guard and tackle in 2013.

Chandler is expected to compete at left tackle with Charles Leno Jr., and gives the Bears added versatility up front.
