The Bears signed defensive end Trevor Scott to a one-year deal on Thursday, the team announced.
Scott, who turns 30 in August, has played for three teams in six NFL seasons. He played for the Raiders from 2008-11 and had five sacks in ’08 and seven in ’09.
In 2012, Scott played in 14 games with two starts for the Patriots, recording three sacks. Last season, Scott appeared in four games for the Buccaneers and made three tackles. He was cut on Oct. 24.
A sixth-round pick out of Buffalo, Scott adds depth to defensive end before offseason practices begin. Corey Wootton will be a free agent on Tuesday, Shea McClellin moved to linebacker and Julius Peppers’ future remains uncertain.
