The Bears didn’t trade for Terrell Owens, but they did make a trade tonight for a young pass rusher that will be given to defensive line coach Rod Marinelli to develop.

General manager Jerry Angelo traded his second-round draft pick in 2010 for Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Gaines Adams, who had fallen out of favor with first-year coach Raheem Morris.

Adams, a first-round draft pick in 2007, had 12 1/2 sacks through his first two seasons. He was drafted by the Bucs to play in the Tampa Two scheme, and now the Bears have some youth moving forward at the position with Adewale Ogunleye and Mark Anderson coming out of contract after this season. The Bears are looking at Adams to help now though.
