Bears Sign DE Walker to 1-Year Deal
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bears have signed defensive end Derek Walker to a one-year contract and waived offensive lineman Tyler Hendrickson.

The moves were announced on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Walker entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Seahawks in 2009 out of Illinois and spent part of last season with the Chicago Rush, an arena team. Hendrickson was an undrafted rookie free-agent tackle out of Concordia in St. Paul, Minn.
