The Chicago Bears have tendered an offer to restricted free agent Roy Robertson-Harris. The Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs is reporting the Bears tendered him at a second round level, which means he will make approximately $3.4 million this season. That high of a tender will also make it unlikely another team would try to pry RRH away with an offer, as the Bears hold the right to match or let him leave for a second round pick.
The 26-year old defensive end was originally an undrafted free agent out of Texas El Paso in 2016, but he spent his entire rookie year on the reserve/non-football illness list. His defensive playing time has increased in each of his three years going from 212 snaps in 2017, to 353 in 2018, and 543 a year ago. Robertson-Harris has also averaged 136 snaps in the third-phase during his career.
He had 30 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 3 passes defended, 2.5 sacks, and 10 quarterback hits, while starting 7 of the 15 games he played in a year ago.
What are your thoughts on RRH coming back to Chicago?
