Ryan Pace has quietly worked to bolster the Bears’ front seven this offseason.

This offseason for the Chicago Bears hasn’t shaped up to expectations from the media and especially not the fanbase. After all, we’re still wondering how they’re going to improve the offense, following the signing of QB Andy Dalton.

Meanwhile, the Bears have been bolstering their front seven. In addition to a pair of depth signings along the D-Line, the Bears now have snuck in a piece for their rotation at their edges. Today, that addition is OLB Jeremiah Attaochu. The Bears made this signing official moments ago.

Jeremiah Attaochu has been a productive veteran in his various stops within the NFL. Last season Attaochu registered 5.0 sacks and 7.0 tackles for loss in 13 games with the Denver Broncos. He figures to be a candidate for first off the bench within the Bears’ rotation at outside linebacker.

The work up front, compared to what has happened with their secondary, is worth noting. In all the Bears have made three additions between their D-Line and OLB. As for corner, they have only added Desmond Trufant, while releasing Kyle Fuller. There is, still, a big vacancy alongside Eddie Jackson at Safety.

Once we know more, including the terms of the deal for Attaochu, we’ll keep all of you in the loop.

**EDIT**

Just like that Chris Emma of 670 the Score is reporting this will be a two-year deal instead of a one-year deal.
