Bears sign WR Roy Williams

Bears agreed to terms with Roy Williams on a two-year deal.
Williams is reunited with Mike Martz, who helped the 29-year-old receiver reach his lone Pro Bowl back in 2006. Williams brings desperately needed size to the Bears' receiving corps and immediately gets a boost by playing for a coach that has confidence in him. Martz will find ways to help Williams separate and run many more three-wide sets than he did last year.  
We'll Williams is not one of the top 10 WR free agents but I'll take it.... I guess. Roy was a stud in Detroit but his skills have obviously diminished over the years. He is only 29 and Mike Martz hand picked him to be in this offense. The only problem is that Martz also hand picked TE Brandon Malewhatshisface and Chester Taylor last offseason. One is now gone and the other is still being overpaid as a backup.
I hope Jerry has more signings in him today. Another WR and an offensive lineman would make me feel a lot better about the 2011 season.
