Former #Seahawks OL Germain Ifedi is signing a 1-year deal with the #Bears, source said. The former first-rounder gets a fresh start and may play guard in Chicago.
For those of you who absolutely couldn't stand Germain Ifedi for the entirety of his Seahawks career... he's a Chicago Bear now.
Bears who were first-round picks of other teams:
Bears’ own first-round picks on the roster:
George Fant (24 career starts) - 3 years, $30 million
Germain Ifedi (60 career starts) - One-year deal, may be moving to guard.
That's pretty wild. https://t.co/ieoD8QGai6
In four seasons in the NFL, the newest Chicago Bear offensive lineman Germain Ifedi has only missed four games.
The bad news is that in four seasons, Ifedi has committed 29 false starts and 12 holding flags.

Former Seahawks RT Germain Ifedi is signing with the Bears, I'm told (@RapSheet
reported first). He becomes Seattle's fourth UFA departure following OT George Fant, DL Quinton Jefferson and DT Al Woods. One of their additions was RT Brandon Shell, who's in line to replace Ifedi.
The Bears have signed Germain Ifedi and Jimmy Graham in free agency, so I'm going to go ahead and assume that a trade for Tedric Thompson is imminent
With Ifedi gone, of Seattle's 11-man 2016 draft class just two remain on the current roster --- Jarran Reed and Joey Hunt. C.J. Prosise remains unsigned.
Germain Ifedi is going to the Bears for a fresh start but all he will get is a false start.
#Seahawks fans don't have Germain Ifedi around to rip anymore. After 4 years of pass-pro issues, a position switch and 52 penalties in 60 career games, the now-ex-starting RT is heading to Chicago on a 1-year deal. That has to be shorter than he expected https://t.co/UneJgWIIEy
Esta es una muy buena contratación por parte de los Bears! Puede jugar Guardia o Tackle y eso le da a Pace flexibilidad en el Draft.

Ifedi resigned... TWO WORDS... WHY AND DANG
I think moving to RG is extremely ideal for Germain Ifedi!
Ifedi gets too much shit tbh
Cara o Ifedi é péssimo
Só não cortaram ele por ser escolha de primeira rodada e admitir que foi um erro seu draft
Heard what you said about Ifedi and you're not wrong... but on top of the penalties which were not only significant in amount, they were often untimely and in crucial situations. He also got beat like a rented mule.
Signing Ifedi helps our O-Line. The defense doesn’t have too many flaws. We only really need a CB2, so why not use our 2nd Round picks on Hurts and a receiver.
YESS IFEDI FINALLY LEFT SEATTLE!!
