Akiem Hicks is staying in the Windy City for the long haul.

The Chicago Bears signed the defensive end to a four-year, $48 million contract extension with $30 million guaranteed, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday. Hicks is now under contract in Chicago through 2021.

Around the NFL will have more on this story shortly.

Wow. That's not tooooo far off of JPP's numbers....

I think JPP got 4 for 62 with 40 gtd

Hicks gets 4 for 48 with 30 gtd

Hicks makes maybe three mil per year less (12 mil per for Hicks, 15 per for JPP) but Hicks isn't on the same planet as JPP in regards to ability/talent
Not many effective pass rushers out there to be had

True but over paying for mediocre ones isn't the best idea either...
Crazy deal based on his talent.

Was called Hicks, here at BBI ?

That's what came to mind when I saw this thread. I thought to myself, man this guy really re-invented himself !
