Adrian Wilson seemed like such a natural fit with the Patriots when he signed a year ago, but he never played a down for them.

Now, the five-time Pro Bowler has a chance to continue his career.

The Bears announced they signed Wilson Monday, along with tight end Jeron Mastrud.

Wilson tore his Achilles in the preseason finale last year, and spent the year on injured reserve. It will be interesting to see if he’s recovered enough to compete for a roster spot.

The Bears aren’t loaded at the position, but Wilson was beginning to look like a situational player before the injury.
