Bears Sign Linebacker Cato June
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears have signed linebacker Cato June to a one-year contract.

The deal was announced Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed.

June, a sixth-round draft pick by Indianapolis in 2003, has 490 tackles and 12 interceptions in 88 career games, including 73 starts in six seasons with the Colts and Tampa Bay.

The 2005 Pro Bowl selection has appeared in eight playoff games with seven starts, including all four at weakside linebacker during the Colts' run to the Super Bowl title after the 2006 season.

June spent part of the 2009 preseason with the Houston Texans before being placed on the reserve/injured list on August 28.

The Bears also terminated the practice squad contract of defensive end Joe Clermond Tuesday.
