The Chicago Bears have signed guard Vladimir Ducasse to a one-year deal, Brad Briggs of the Chicago Tribune reports

Ducasse entered the league in 2010 with the New York Jets and spent the first four years of his career with them. Last season he moved on to the Minnesota Vikings for one year. He played in all 16 games with the Jets from 2011-13 and he played in 13 last year for the Vikings. 

Ducasse has seen time at both the left and right guard positions.

Last week, Bears general manager Ryan Pace announced the team plans on starting quarterback Jay Cutler despite temporarily benching him late last season.

During the offseason, the Bears have re-signed backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen, signed linebacker Pernell McPhee and signed safety Antrel Rolle.

The Bears finished last season just 5-11 and head coach Marc Trestman was fired. He was replaced by John Fox, who was shown the door by the Denver Broncos after last season as well.
