Vernon Gholston is a Chicago Bear

V. Gholston1

The Bears’ somewhat wacky start to the offseason continues.

Vernon Gholston will join Roy Williams in the windy city after signing a one-year contract, the team announced Friday.

We’re having a little fun here, but it’s a fine gamble. If anyone can coax production out of a pass rusher, it’s Bears defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

Gholston likely signed for the league minimum salary or close to it. There’s no guarantee he will even make the roster.

Chicago also announced they reached agreement with their first-round pick, tackle Gabe Carimi.
