The NFL moves are coming in pretty fast and furious of late.

The Chicago Bears have reportedly re-signed offensive lineman Germain Ifedi to a one-year deal worth up to $5 million.

His base salary for the 2021 season will be $4.25 million.

Ifedi was ranked 32 out of 68 guards with 500+ snaps per PFF last season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Bears nabbed Andy Dalton and Ifedi, so that pushed Pro-Bowler Trent Williams back to the 49ers.

"Trent Williams also discussed deals with the Chiefs and the Bears," he said. "The Chiefs wound up with signing Joe Thuney, the Bears signed Andy Dalton and Germain Ifedi, ensuring that the 49ers would make Williams the highest-paid offensive lineman in history."

The Bears restructured several of their stars' contracts to save $23 million in cap space this offseason and have used more than $14 million in the signing of Dalton, Mario Edwards Jr., and Ifedi.
