The Chicago Bears are once again going to their monsters of the midway roots by signing middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds to the richest middle linebacker contract in history.
After failing to come to an agreement with Roquan Smith, who was a part of the same draft class as Tremaine Edmunds, the Chicago Bears decided to have a big man in the middle again.

Coming out of college Tremaine Edmunds was compared to former Chicago Bears Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher. Athletically speaking in terms of size and speed and range Edmunds is comparable to the former Bears great.
Tremaine Edmunds (Va. Tech) “comp” in 2018 draft was former @Bears great Brian Urlacher with the length and range for a ILB/MLB in Tampa 2 scheme.
It was really good in Buffalo, just not great and not as physical as Urlacher but Edmunds only will be 24 years old in May.

Edmunds goes 6-foot-5 250-pounds which is an inch taller than Urlacher. The signing of Edmunds represents the third signing of the day for the Chicago Bears.
