He was acquired by Chicago in 1998 as an unrestricted free agent after starting 16 games for the Lions in 1997. In his three-year stay in Chicago, Wells recorded 246 tackles, forced three fumbles, had five sacks and one interception.
"I had a great three years in Chicago," Wells said. "I just wish we could have won more games. I was treated well by the fans and the organization. I admire the guys on the team and wish them well this season."
Bears General Manager Jerry Angelo will be available for comment tonight at 6 p.m. at Halas Hall.
