Former Saint Akiem Hicks sign with the Bears for a 4-year, $48M extension

Akiem Hicks is staying in the Windy City for the long haul.

The Chicago Bears have signed the defensive end to a four-year, $48 million contract extension with $30 million guaranteed, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday. The team later made the announcement official. Hicks is now under contract in Chicago through 2021.


Hicks joined the Bears in 2016 on a two-year, $10 million deal following a three-year stint with the New Orleans Saints and half of a season in New England. In his first year with Chicago, Hicks had the best season of his career, compiling 54 total tackles and seven sacks.

The 27-year-old is a cornerstone of general manager Ryan Pace's defensive rebuild. Paired with nose tackle Eddie Goldman and defensive end Mitch Unrein, Hicks excelled last season and is expected to follow up 2016 with similar production this year.

There's no "what if's" about the game Akiem Hicks is having against the Falcons today...

Saints got rid of Hicks to go to a 3-4 Defense...

Saints got rid of Rob Ryan to go back to a 4-3 Defense...

Savvy?
