The Chicago Bears saw yet another member of their 2022 squad land with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday. The Bears traded linebacker Roquan Smith to the Ravens last season. Offensive lineman Sam Mustipher signed with Baltimore earlier in May.

The Bears signed the former fourth-round pick to a two-year deal in 2021. He started in 12 games for the Bears and played in 32. Blackson recorded 65 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and four tackles for loss during his time with Chicago. Blackson earned a 35.2 overall grade from Pro Football Focus. He earned better grades for the pass rush (51.7) than for run defense (30.3).
Blackson had a better 2021 season with the Bears. He was brought into Chicago to be used as a defensive end in the Bears’ 3-4 scheme under then-defensive coordinator Sean Desai. Blackson didn’t appear to adjust well to being used as a defensive tackle in the Bears’ 4-3 scheme under head coach Matt Eberflus and defensive coordinator Alan Williams. Blackson should feel more at home in the Ravens’ 3-4 system.
Here’s one good memory Bears fans will have of Blackson recording a safety against the New York Giants:
