Bears sign FB Khari Blasingame 2-year extension

According to Team IFA’s agency, Khari Blasingame of the Chicago Bears, fullback, Khari Blasingame has been signed by the team.

Blasingame served as the lead blocker for the NFL’s top run game from last season, and it’s a solid signing for general manager Ryan Poles to keep an important part of their offense in place.

Blasingame signed a one-year contract last offseason and became the first fullback for the team since 2018. He didn’t record a single stat for Chicago, but he was a key component to the success of the Bears’ rushing attack. Blasingame was instrumental in opening up opportunities for Khalil Herbert and David Montgomery, and Chicago averaged more than 150 rushing yards per week. He also helped ensure that the Bears had sustained success on ground this year.
