The Seahawks drafted Ifedi in the first round in 2016, and though he has been a full-time starter since his rookie campaign, he has never lived up to that billing. Seattle declined his fifth-year option last May, and his play did not improve enough to make the team regret that decision.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll did express interest in bringing Ifedi back, but no reports of negotiations between the two sides ever surfaced. Instead, the Texas A&M product will attempt to rebuild his value with the Bears.
Rapoport says the Bears — who have Bobby Massie penciled in at right tackle — could give Ifedi a shot at guard. He played guard in his rookie season in Seattle before kicking out to right tackle.
Chicago’s offensive line was one of the worst in the NFL in 2019, but Ifedi represents the lone free-agent addition the club has made to that unit thus far.
