The Chicago Bears made another big splash in free agency, signing a top defensive end away from the Minnesota Vikings.

Jared Allen agreed to a four-year deal worth up to $32 million.

He turns 32 next month, but he has not missed a game in the last six years.

Allen recorded 11-and-a-half sacks last year, and he’s had double-digit sacks seven years in a row.

The Bears also added pass rushers Lamarr Houston and Willie Young earlier this month.
