Larry Ogunjobi will not sign with the Chicago Bears after failing to hit fitness.
Ogunjobi originally signed a three-year contract worth $40.5 million and guaranteed $26.35 million left the defending AFC champions to work on rebuilding in Chicagoland. Although he has never made big money before, this is like a money push for Ogunjobi. While he can be a big help in Matt Eberflus’ defense, that doesn’t seem to be the case here anymore.
Ogunjobi has just had leg surgery, which is probably a big part of what keeps him from getting over his physical side.
Larry Ogunjobi is not physically successful, will not sign with Chicago Bears
For Ogunjobi, this is confusing as he is unlikely to earn the same amount of cash or years on the next contract he signs. The fact that he failed physically with the Bears, it’s a red sign of his overall market value. For the Bears, this is the latest example of why they are the epitome of an organization that couldn’t be more stable. They wasted four days as a free agent.
No, Chicago is not expected to be a contender this season, but trying to spend big money on a player in the first wave of free agency only to physically fail him is not the way to go. good for a new mode. While it may work for the Bears, here are four days they won’t come back. Not only did they want to overpay Ogunjobi, but they also didn’t take his health situation into account first.
While there’s optimism surrounding the Eberflus/Ryan Poles era at Halas Hall, for anything better than the Matt Nagy/Ryan Pace partnership, the Bears continue to have the backing of activist organizations better performance in the tournament. The fan base is dying for the winner and maybe one day they will get the winner? Meanwhile, the Bears still proved slow, classic and out of place.
The Bears needed a new identity, but the organization continued to make the same mistakes.
