Germain Ifedi is headed to the Chicago Bears.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the former Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman is signing a one-year deal with the Bears.
This is Seattle’s fourth unrestricted free agent departure this offseason. Offensive tackle George Fant, defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson and defensive tackle Al Woods all signed deals with other NFL teams in free agency.
The Seahawks addition of Brandon Shell seemingly marked the end of the Ifedi era. Seattle reached an agreement with the former Jets’ OT on a two-year, $11 million deal, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Ifedi, who will be 26 going into the 2020 NFL season, started 60 games over the past four seasons for Seattle. The Seahawks No. 31 overall pick in 2016 played every offensive snap last season, but had an alarming 14 penalties in 16 games.
