The Chicago Bears have signed former Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver Chris Williams from the New Orleans Saints practice squad.
 
Williams spent the past 12 weeks on the Saints' practice squad, after he and the TiCats had settled their arbitration case in October.
 
TSN Reporter Farhan Lalji confirms that Bears head coach Marc Trestman, who saw Williams' exploits in the CFL first hand during his time as the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes, was instrumental in Williams signing with Chicago. Williams will be on the Bears 53 man roster this week.
 
According to Lalji, Williams was given a $100,000 signing bonus from the Bears. He also earned the NFL minimum salary while with the Saints, despite only being on the practice roster, so his total compensation for 2013 will be $300,000.
