Bears sign G Whitehair to a 5-year extension

nfl2The Chicago Bears signed guard Cody Whitehair to a five-year extension through the 2024 season on Sunday.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported the deal’s value at $52.5 million with $27.5 million guaranteed.

Whitehair, 27, has started all 48 games since Chicago drafted him in the second round (56th overall) out of Kansas State in 2016. He was entering the final year of his rookie contract.

After making the Pro Bowl as a center in 2018, the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Whitehair is moving to left guard this season with James Daniels taking over in the middle.

The Bears kick off the NFL’s 100th season on Thursday night against the visiting Green Bay Packers.
