CHICAGO (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says former Super Bowl MVP receiver Santonio Holmes has agreed to a contract with the Chicago Bears.

The person spoke Saturday on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

The Bears are looking for a third receiver behind stars Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Marquess Wilson was battling for that job when he broke his collarbone last week.

A first-round draft pick by Pittsburgh in 2006, Holmes was the Super Bowl MVP in his third year. He had his best season statistically the following year in 2009 with 79 catches for 1,248 yards and five touchdowns. But he was traded to the New York Jets the following offseason.
