The Bears took a step toward adding some depth to their defense Wednesday, inking cornerback Derricus Purdy to a deal.

Purdy -- listed at 6-foot, 190-pounds -- went undrafted in 2013, last playing for Texas Southern in 2012. He recorded 34 tackles, one interception and four pass breakups for the Tigers.
