Roster Move: Bears sign free agent DL Rasheem Green


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears are making moves to improve their defensive line this off-season.

On Thursday, the Chicago Bears announced that they have signed free-agent defensive lineman Rasheem Green to a one-year contract worth $2.5 million with 850K guaranteed, including a 350K signing bonus.

Other incentives include up to 500K in game roster bonuses and 250K in playtime and sack totals.

The news was first reported by NFL insider Adam Schefter on his Twitter account, and Bears fans are hoping that Green can bring some much-needed stability to the team's pass rush.

Green is a five-year NFL veteran who has played for the Houston Texans and the Seattle Seahawks.

For his NFL career in 69 games with 29 starts, recording 136 tackles, 17 tackles-for-loss, 17.0 sacks, three fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles and eight pass breakups.

In 2022, he had 42 combined tackles, 3.5 sacks, 5 TFLs, and 8 QB hits in 16 games.

During the 2021 season, he recorded 3.5 sacks while primarily playing at defensive end for the Texans.

However, he also saw some snaps at defensive tackle over the last two games of the season, indicating that he has some versatility and can play multiple positions along the defensive line.

Green's experience and versatility will be a valuable addition to the Bears' defense, and he will likely compete for playing time at multiple positions.

The Bears' pass rush was one of the worst in the NFL last season, and the addition of Green is part of a larger effort to improve the team's defense.

Earlier this offseason, the Bears added two other defensive linemen in DeMarcus Walker and Andrew Billings, further bolstering the team's front line.

While there is no guarantee of success, Green's track record and experience suggest that he has the potential to be a valuable contributor to the team. Bears fans will be watching closely to see how he performs on the field, and whether he can help lead the team in 2023.
