Chicago Bears linebacker Matt Adams was charged with misdemeanor firearm possession Thursday night, authorities said.
According to Chicago police, a search of his vehicle discovered a loaded handgun, a high-capacity magazine and metal-piercing bullets.
Possession of a high-capacity magazine within the Chicago city limits is a municipal code violation.
Adams has a court date scheduled for Aug. 24.
Adams, 26, signed a one-year deal with the Bears in April after spending his first four seasons with Indianapolis.
A seventh-round pick by the Colts in 2018, Adams played in 58 games (nine starts) and contributed 55 tackles.
