The Bears announced they have signed defensive tackle Nate Collins.
The former Jaguar has received a one-year deal after playing only 12 games in Jacksonville where he recorded 10 tackles, one fumble and pass deflected, and a 0.5 sack.
The 24-year old originally signed with the Giants in 2010 as an undrafted free agent and is a product of the University of Virginia.
For Carl Edwards Jr., Memorial Day has a special meaning.
That's because the Cubs reliever has a very close tie to the armed services.
Edwards met his fiance, Nette Smith, before her deployment in Afghanistan. Throughout her active service, Edwards kept in touch by writing her letters. Their relationship eventually blossomed, and now the couple has a one-year-old child.
With Smith's army commitment finished, she views Memorial Day as a time to appreciate all those who serve.
"To me, Memorial Day is a day set aside for me to remember some of the people I have met who sacrificed everything," Smith said.
