LINK Bears’ Edwards powers up, returns from suspension A deep defensive line gets even stronger.
Edwards’ return could not come at a better time. The Bears’ defense is coming off a game against the Bengals where they had nine quarterback hits, six tackles-for-loss, and four sacks without Edwards’ services. Adding the seventh-year veteran into the mix after a career-best 2020 season can only make Chicago’s defense more potent. The Bears evidently agree. They wouldn’t have given him a three-year, $11 million contract, with half guaranteed this past off-season, if they didn’t expect him to be an excellent complementary No. 3 edge rusher to Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn.
One of the deeper defensive lines in pro football just got stronger.
