The Chicago Bears have made another addition to their offensive line by signing Nicholas Amoah, according to multiple reports including his agent.

The 6-foot-3, 305-pound offensive lineman played college football at the University of California, Davis and has shown promise on the field.

During the fall of 2021, Amoah started 10 games on the left side of the offensive line for UC Davis. His blocking helped the team rank second in the league in rushing yards per game with an average of 178.5, and fourth overall with 407 total yards per contest. Additionally, the offensive line allowed the 29th fewest sacks during the FCS regular season.

In the spring of 2021, Amoah was named to the All-Big Sky Conference First Team after starting all five games at left tackle, bringing his career total to nine starts.

Amoah also impressed during the UC Davis pro day, where he recorded a 26 bench press, a 5.1 forty-yard dash, a 30-inch vertical jump, and an 8-6 broad jump.

Aside from his football skills, Amoah's academic background is noteworthy.

He is an aerospace science and engineering major, which he says helps him think analytically and break down complex problems into smaller, manageable steps. This analytical approach likely serves him well on the football field, where he must quickly assess the defense and execute his plays with precision.

With his size, strength, and analytical mind, he has the potential to become a valuable contributor to the team.
