The Chicago Bears signed defensive lineman Mitch Unrein on Friday and waived defensive lineman Lavar Edwards.

Unrein has appeared in 56 games with three starts over five seasons with the Denver Broncos (2011-14) and San Diego Chargers (2015), recording 49 tackles, six quarterback hits and one fumble recovery. He appeared in six postseason games with Denver, recording six tackles.

Unrein played for current Bears head coach John Fox with the Broncos before signing with the Chargers this offseason. He appeared in each of the first two games for San Diego and recorded one tackle before being released Thursday.

Unrein entered the NFL in 2010 as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans out of the University of Wyoming.

Edwards has appeared in 12 games with one start during his NFL career, including appearing in last Sunday’s game for the Bears.
