The Bears have brought back edge rusher Aaron Lynch to a one-year deal, a good move for a team that will look to put more pressure on the quarterback in 2019.
Last season Lynch started three games, totaling three sacks, eight quarterback hits and one interception. If you use a 888Sport coupon code for the Bears in 2019, keep an eye on Lynch, as he can certainly help this team to wins.
Like he did last year, Lynch will play behind Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd, the team’s two starters, but again, he can be a big asset from not only a depth standpoint, but also when the team needs some fresh legs on the field late in games.
“Where else would I want to be?” Lynch told ChicagoBears.com. “This is where I want to be. It’s where I see my future.”
Lynch, who had reported trips to Seattle and Indianapolis as a free agent, has started 22 games and totaled 18 sacks in his career.
Before coming to the Bears last year, Lynch spent his first four NFL seasons with the 49ers after being selected by San Francisco in the fifth round of the 2014 draft out of South Florida.
Overall with the 49’ers he played in 44 games with 19 starts, registering 83 tackles, 15 sacks and 28 tackles-for-loss.
Lynch is the perfect type of player to be on the Bears roster, a player that can not only fill in when needed, but a player that knows what winning is like, something the young Bears did last season, winning the NFC North before losing a heartbreaker in the NFC Wild Card game at home to the Philadelphia Eagles.
“We get to build on last year,” Lynch said.
“We didn’t [reach the Super Bowl], so now we really want to get there. I feel like that’s a huge motivational ladder that we get to climb up this year.”
The Bears have done a very good job thus far this season bringing back their own players, as they have inked now seven players from last season that could have left the team.
So far this offseason, the team has inked right tackle Bobby Massie, tight end Ben Braunecker, punter Pat O’Donnell, quarterback Tyler Bray, safety DeAndre Houston-Carson and defensive tackle Nick Williams.
The team has also added some talent from other teams, as they have signed six free agents from other squads since the start of the new NFL season in early March.
Receiver/return specialist Cordarrelle Patterson (Patriots), running back Mike Davis (Seahawks), nickel back Buster Skrine (Jets), safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (Redskins), offensive lineman Ted Larsen (Dolphins) and receiver Marvin Hall (Falcons) are all now members of the Bears.
