The Chicago Bears have announced that defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris has signed his one-year contract tender, keeping him in the Navy and Orange through the 2020 season.

It was reported a month ago that the Bears tendered him an offer at the second round level ($3.4 million), meaning that as a restricted free agent Robertson-Harris could have signed with another team, but the Bears would have have had the ability to match the offer to keep him in Chicago or allow him to leave for a second-round pick.

He’ll now re-join Akiem Hicks. Eddie Goldman, and Bilal Nichols along Chicago's front three.

Robertson-Harris, originally an undrafted free agent from Texas El Paso in 2016, played in a career high 543 snaps on defense (51%) a year ago, and in three years he has 7.5 sacks, 65 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, and 25 quarterback hits.

The 26-year old, 6’5”, 292 pounder has always put in the offseason work to ready himself for the season, and this year is no different as evidenced by this recent clip from the Footwork King on Twitter.

And how about a 2019 highlight package for RRH?
