The Bears did not hesitate to take out the honey to put their paw on the linebacker.
Tremaine Edmunds is heading to Illinois. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the former Bills player has reached an agreement with the Chicago Bears for 4 years and 72 million dollars, 50 of which guaranteed. A considerable sum for an interior linebacker.
At 24, Edmunds was the gondola head of free agents at his position. In just 5 years in the league, he accumulated more than 600 tackles, including 6 for loss, in addition to deflecting 7 passes.
His arrival will strengthen a Bears defense that has conceded no less than 2,674 yards on the ground with an average of 4.9 yards per carry in 2022. After the trade of the first choice with Carolina, and the signing of guard Nate Davis, the Chicago general manager Ryan Poles continues to dictate the pace of the offseason.
