Larry Ogunjobi plans to sign with Bears

Mike Florio and Peter King turn their attention to Chicago's side of the Khalil Mack trade and discuss why it was the right move at the right time for the Bears.

The AFC champions are set to lose a key member of their defensive line.

According to multiple reports, defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi intends to sign with the Bears. No deal can become official until the new league year opens on March 16.

Ogunjobi signed a one-year deal with the Bengals last year and started all 17 games he played for the team. He had 49 tackles and seven sacks in the regular season, but went down in the playoff opener with a foot injury and did not return for the final three games of the Bengals’ run.

The Bears have Akiem Hicks on track for free agency and the Ogunjobi deal may be a signal that Hicks will be moving on. The Bengals also have B.J. Hill set for free agency at defensive tackle.

UPDATE 1:22 p.m. ET: Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Ogubjobi has agreed to a three-year, $40.5 million deal.
