The Chicago Bears had a busy first week of free agency but still have a lot of salary cap to work with
Chicago Bears GM Ryan Poles was a big spender on the first day of NFL free agency, agreeing to terms with inside linebackers Tremaine Edmunds (four years, $72 million) and T.J. Edwards (three years, $19.5 million), offensive guard Nate Davis (three years, $30 million) and defensive end DeMarcus Walker (two years, $14 million).
After the first wave of free agency, Chicago Bears still has the most salary cap space in the NFL.
According to Over The Cap, the Bears have $41.4 million in cap space, where the Atlanta Falcons ($26 million) and Green Bay Packers ($24.16 million) trail them. Chicago’s total doesn’t include Andrew Billings or D’Onta Foreman’s contracts — as the full details aren’t out yet — but the Bears are still in a favorable position.
