Bears sign veteran OLB to two-year deal


by - Senior Editor -

You can never have too many talented pass-rushers in the NFL.

The Chicago Bears announced on Sunday evening that they have signed veteran outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu to a two-year deal.

No word yet on any contract details.

Attaochu had five sacks and 31 tackles in 13 games (five starts) last season playing for the Denver Broncos.

Overall, he has played seven NFL seasons registering 144 tackles, including 31 tackles for loss, 20.5 sacks, 42 quarterback hits, and four forced fumbles.

The Chargers drafted him in the second round of the 2014 draft out of Georgia Tech. During his time with the Yellow Jackets, he set the school record with 31.5 career sacks.

The Bears have been busy during this early portion of free agency as they have already signed defenders Angelo Blackson, Desmond Trufant, and the aforementioned Attaochu.
