From the Sun-Times:
The Bears signed kicker Nick Novak and allocated him to NFL Europe. Novak was originally in training camp with the Bears in 2005 and has scored 64 points in two seasons with the Washington Redskins and Arizona Cardinals. He will provide insurance for Robbie Gould and an extra leg for camp.
Bears - Robbie Gould + Shank Novak + Windy City = Shit, we suck again.
