ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions have signed ex-Chicago Bears defensive end Israel Idonije to a one-year contract and have released defensive end Freddie Bishop.

The team said Wednesday it isn't releasing terms of its contract with Idonije, a free agent who grew up in Brandon, Man.

Idonije played at the University of Manitoba, and has spent nine seasons with the Bears. He started 11 games last season and finished second on the team in sacks (7.5) behind Julius Peppers (11.5).

Idonije made 48 tackles (29 solo), had 7.5 sacks (68 yards) and one forced fumble last season.
