BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a three-year contract with linebacker Andrew Starks and waived kicker Austin Signor.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Starks appeared in 39 games over four-seasons for Princeton from 2009 to 2012 and had 298 tackles, three interceptions and three fumble recoveries.

Signor was signed to a three-year deal in April. He spent his final two seasons at Illinois after playing his first two at Iowa, hitting 14 of 22 field goal attempts and all 34 extra points as a senior in 2009.

The team announced the moves on Friday.
