​It's not even the NFL offseason yet, but some players are already cashing in on brand new deals.


In an effort to keep ​Mitchell Trubisky upright for another year, the ​Chicago Bears have decided to give offensive lineman ​Bobby Massie a four-year contract extension.



Massie, a seven-year pro, has been with the Bears since 2016. Before he went to Chicago, Massie was on the ​Arizona Cardinals for four years.


With the extension of Massie, the Bears are now solidified at offensive line, retaining all of their starters from 2018 for the 2019 season.



With the offensive line out of the way, general manager Ryan Pace and the rest of the Bears organization can now focus on some of their more pressing needs like kicker (​Cody Parkey has been as good as gone since the double-doink) and free safety.


Expect the Bears to be active this offseason in an attempt to take their next step towards a Super Bowl run.
