The Chicago Bears have made their first signing in free agency as they sign former Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi.
Ogunjobi is coming off foot surgery but is expected to be ready to participate before the season begins. With the Bears transitioning to a 4-3 defense under new head coach Matt Eberflus, Ogunjobi is will slide into the 3-technique that would fit Chicago’s new defensive scheme. Last season, Ogunjobi had 7 sacks and 16 QB pressures.
According to multiple reporters, the deal is slated to a 3-year deal worth $40.5 million, including $26.3 million guaranteed.
