(TSX / STATS) -- Free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz has agreed to a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday.

Wide receiver was a position of need for the Bears after losing Alshon Jeffery, a free agent who signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. But the Bears have a number of wide receivers who will vie for playing time, including Cameron Meredith, Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton.

Cruz, 30, spent his previous six seasons with the New York Giants, and he had big seasons in 2011, 2012 and 2013, catching 241 passes for 3,626 yards and 23 touchdowns in 46 games in those three seasons.
