NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Tuesday that the veteran defensive lineman has agreed to terms to return to the Chicago Bears, according to a source involved with the deal. The Bearslater made the move official.

Idonije played the first nine seasons of his career with the Bears before spending 2013 with the Detroit Lions. In 15 games with the Lions last season, Idonije was credited with 11 tackles and half a sack.

Entering his age-34 season, Idonije is unlikely to be guaranteed a roster spot with the Bears. His days as a starter are probably done, but he could stick around as a supporting player.
