The Chicago Bears are signing former Bengals defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi to a three-year deal worth $40.5 million including $26.35 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports.

The standout defensive lineman is only 27 years old and had seven sacks, 12 tackles for loss, and 16 quarterback hits last season.

In four years in Cincinnati, he had 14.5 sacks and 180 tackles.

This is a solid move for the Bears as he will be the run-stopper in their 4-3 defense as they recently released Eddie Goldman.

Robert Quinn, Trevis Gibson, and Ogunjobi make for a talented group to rush the passer this upcoming season. It should be fun to watch for Bears fans all season long.
