In an expected move, the Chicago Bears have tendered an offer to Roy Robertson-Harris. Maintaining their depth along the defensive line.

The Chicago Bears are attempting to keep one of their strongest position groups in tact by tendering an offer to restricted free agent Roy Robertson-Harris. The Bears placed a 2nd round tender on their offer meaning Robertson-Harris and his agent are still free to try and negotiate a long term deal with another team. However, it would cost whoever signs him a second round pick. Such a high tender is proof of how much the Bears value Robertson-Harris.

Roy Robertson-Harris background

Signed as an un-drafted free agent out of the University of Texas, El Paso in 2016, RRH was moved from his collegiate position of linebacker to defensive line. He used that  season to bulk up and learn the ins and outs of the defensive line. Under the guidance of defensive line coach Jay Rodgers, Robertson-Harris appeared in 13 games as a rookie and recorded 2 sacks. He registered enough “flash” plays to catch the eyes of Ryan Pace and the defensive coaching staff.

NFL career

In the Bears NFC North championship season of 2018 he increased his sack totals by one, from 2 to 3. He did, however, registered 11 quarterback hits, up from 4 the previous season, and 16 pressures. As a part of the rotation, RRH has demonstrated his ability to disrupt game plans in the running and passing game. His ability to set the edge against the run and plug the middle of line demonstrates his versatility along the line.

When Akiem Hicks and Bilal Nichols went down with injuries last season, Robertson-Harris filled in admirably and announced himself to the league. If continues his growth and ascension, he will command a substantial raise from the Bears or another suitor. Until that time he will continue to terrorize opponents as a member of the Chicago Bears formidable defensive line.
