Bears agree to terms with TE Gerald Everett on 2-year deal

The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with former Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Everett is signing a two-year deal worth $12 million with a maximum value of $14 million. That includes $6.1 million fully guaranteed.

Everett worked with new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron with the Seattle Seahawks in 2021, where he had 48 receptions for 478 yards and four touchdowns.

Everett joins a tight end room featuring starter Cole Kmet, who’s coming off a career year after signing a four-year extension last offseason. Kmet and Everett will be featured prominently in Waldron’s offense, as he utilizes a lot of 12-personnel.

This is the second move of free agency for the Bears, who previously agreed to terms with running back D’Andre Swift.
