The Bears bolstered their defensive line on Tuesday with the addition of former Oakland Raiders end Lamarr Houston.

Houston, 26, had a career-high six sacks in 2013 and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the league's top defensive end against the run.

Houston, who was one of top defensive free agents on the market, caught up with CSN's Chris Boden to discuss why he signed with the Bears.

"The main thing that stood out was Chicago was a contender that needed a little bit of help on defense," Houston said. "I was looking forward to helping the organization rebuild and it looks like this one was right for rebuilding."
