Former Pirate Terry Williams signs with Bears
Former ECU defensive tackle Terry Williams signed a three-year contract with the Chicago Bears on Monday. Williams, who was one of three Pirates to be invited to mini camp by the Bears, was one of three Chicago signings on the day. The 6-foot-1, 322-pound defensive tackle appeared in 10 games last season and was named a first-team All-American Athletic Conference player, thanks to his 34 tackles and 7.5 tackles-for-loss. Williams was an effective player during his time with the Pirates but had his fair share of off-the-field issues that forced him to miss eight games during his junior season. The Bears, however, felt comfortable enough with his past to sign him.
