The Chicago Bears agreed to terms on a one-year deal with offensive tackle and former first-round pick Riley Reiff on Tuesday.
The deal could be worth up to $12.5 million, ESPN and NFL Network reported. Reiff is expected to nab the starting spot at left tackle for the Bears.
“That’s another opportunity — I said from the beginning — our front office is not going to stop chipping away and bringing good football players to make this team better,” Bears general manager Ryan Poles said in announcing the move.
Also on Tuesday, second-round draft pick Jaquan Brisker signed a four-year deal with the team. With the safety in the fold, the Bears have their entire 11-member draft class under contract.
Reiff, 33, started 12 games for the Cincinnati Bengals last season. He was placed on injured reserve on Dec. 16 and missed the rest of the season.
Reiff has played in 147 games (139 starts) for the Detroit Lions (2012-16), Minnesota Vikings (2017-20) and Bengals. He was selected No. 23 overall by the Lions in the 2012 draft.
Brisker recorded 63 tackles and two interceptions while starting 12 games during his final season at Penn State.
