The NFL Insiders crew talks about how LB Danny Trevathan's familiarity with Bears coach John Fox led him to sign with Chicago, as well as how he immediately improves their defense. (1:14)

The Chicago Bears continue to remodel their defense, and they moved in the right direction with the signing of Danny Trevathan from the Denver Broncos.

Chicago had solid production out of its outside linebackers last season with both Pernell McPhee and Willie Young earning strong grades and combining for 114 total pressures. The Bears also saw a lot of promise out of rookie Eddie Goldman on the D-line, but the problem spots were at inside linebacker, where Christian Jones and Shea McClellin were both poor, especially against the run.

For McClellin, this may be the end of his road, but Trevathan should step right into a starting spot and immediately upgrade the position.
