The Chicago Bears signed Pernell McPhee to bring The Nasty back to their defense and he did just that. He plays the game violently and with a chip on his shoulder. He was the right signing at the right time for the Bears as they try to restore the Monster Of The Midway luster on a franchise that has historically been known for it's defense.
General manager Ryan Pace signed McPhee to a 5 year, $38,750,000 deal ($15.5M guaranteed) so he could be a cornerstone of their revamped 3-4 defense, and even though he struggled through a few injuries, he flashed the play-making skills the Bears will need moving forward.
McPhee ended the season with 12 starts in 14 games, 53 tackles, 6 sacks, 9 TFL, 18 QBH, 1 Interception, 3 PD, 1 FF and a blocked kick. The Bears will add some more talent to the defense this offseason and that will only bring even more out of McPhee, for as talented as he is, he can't do it alone.
