The Bears made another depth signing Sunday afternoon, confirming a two-year $10 million contract with defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad. Muhammad was selected in the sixth round of the 2017 grabs by the New Orleans Saints. He was released after his rookie season and moved on to the Indianapolis Colts.
The Miami Hurricane product was mostly a bench player his first three years in Indy, collecting five total sacks. Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus promoted him to a starting role in 2021 and he had a career high six sacks.
The Bears are hoping that he can continue upward trend in Chicago under his former defensive coordinator. Ryan Poles has yet to make any impact free agent signings as it’s clear the front office’s strategy is to build through the draft.
