NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Chicago extended the 30-year-old veteran another two years, via a source involved with the deal. The team confirmed the new contract later Saturday morning. ESPN first reported the news.
Young enjoyed a career-year in his first go-around with the Bears, accumulating a personal-best 10 sacks in 2014 (four more than his first four seasons combined in Detroit).
Last season, the pass-rusher finished second on the team with 6.5 sacks. He showed his versatility as well by picking up his first career interception.
