Chicago Bears Signed Multiple Players, Including Tremaine Edmunds
Edmunds comes over from the Bills, where he quickly became one of the team’s best defenders and leaders. In five seasons, Edmunds started 74 games, finishing with 565 total tackles, including 359 solo.
The two-time Pro Bowler is also known for his pass coverage, with five career interceptions and 35 passes defended.
Edmunds is not the only move the Bears made on Monday.
Chicago signed former Philadephia Eagles linebacker T.J. Edwards to a three-year, $19.5 million contract, with 12 million guaranteed. The Bears also signed former Tennessee Titans offensive guard Nate Davis to a three-year, $30 million contract.
The Bears entered free agency with over $100 million in cap space, the most in the NFL.
Chicago Bears Traded No. 1 Overall Pick
Today’s signings are days removed from the Bears’ trading the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft to the Carolina Panthers for the No. 9 pick, No. 61 pick, a first-round pick in 2024, a second-round pick in 2025, and wide receiver D.J. Moore.
The Bears gained a true weapon for quarterback Justin Fields in Moore and received multiple highly-valued draft picks.
General manager Ryan Poles is looking to significantly upgrade a roster that finished 3-14, losing 10 straight games to close the season.
