The Bears signed DL Maurice Evans to a two-year contract and released P Richmond McGee. Terms of the Evans deal were not disclosed.
Evans was signed by the New York Giants in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State.
He spent the entire 2009 preseason with the Giants before being waived on September 4. The 6-2, 264-pound Evans was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and spent time on both their active roster and practice squad but did not appear in a regular season game. He also spent two weeks on the Carolina Panthers practice squad.
Collegiately, Evans recorded 17 sacks and 100 tackles in 36 career games, including 12.5 sacks in 2007 as a sophomore.
