The Chicago Bears have been busy in free agency, making multiple signings including a massive deal for linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. The former Buffalo Bill has agreed to a four-year contract worth $72 million with $50 million guaranteed.
Edmunds was a first-round pick in the 2018 draft and spent five seasons with the Bills, consistently racking up over 100 tackles each year. He also earned Pro Bowl honors in 2019 and 2020. The Bears’ defense is expected to benefit greatly from Edmunds’ addition, as he brings a combination of size, speed, and athleticism to the linebacker position.
In addition to Edmunds, the Bears have also signed linebacker T.J. Edwards, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles, to a three-year, $19.5 million deal. They also picked up former Tennessee Titans offensive guard Nate Davis on a three-year, $30 million contract with $19.25 million guaranteed.

The Bears’ moves in free agency signal a clear commitment to improving their roster ahead of the 2023 NFL season. While they traded away their No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft to the Carolina Panthers last week, the signings of Edmunds, Edwards, and Davis should help shore up the team’s defense and offensive line. Fans will be eagerly anticipating the start of the season to see how these new additions fare on the field.
