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.
The Bears have just Tim Jennings and Isaiah Frey under contract among cornerbacks. Charles Tillman, Zack Bowman, Sherrick McManis and Kelvin Hayden are all currently free agents.
