The Chicago Bears could be looking to bolster their defensive line by adding Houston Texans nose tackle Earl Mitchell. According to Chicago Tribune Bears beat writer Brad Briggs, Mitchell could be another option on the defensive line aside from Henry Melton.
Another option for #Bears at DT besides Henry Melton is Earl Mitchell. Houston DT should have solid market.

Of course the Bears’ interest in Mitchell, or potential interest, would be dependent on the situation with Melton. He’d be a strong fit and has earned a lot of praise and been labeled by some as a sleeper in free agency.
