The Bears have agreed to terms in principle on a two-year deal with defensive tackle Anthony Adams.

Adams, 31, is a Detroit native who started all 16 games last season and he’s had a pair of sacks in each of the last two seasons.

Adams is widely respected by his teammates. Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs have been among those to insist earlier in the offseason that re-signing him should be a priority.
