LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Associated Press) -

The Chicago Bears have agreed to a three-year contract with defensive end Willie Young and a one-year deal with receiver Domenik Hixon.

Young joins a defense that is getting a makeover after struggling in a big way last season. The Bears released eight-time Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers this week and brought in defensive end Lamarr Houston from Oakland, linebacker Jordan Senn from Carolina and safeties Ryan Mundy (New York Giants) and M.D. Jennings (Green Bay).

The 28-year old Young spent four years with Detroit. Hixon spent last season with Carolina after playing for Denver (2006-07) and the New York Giants (2007-12).

The moves were announced on Thursday.
