CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Bears finalized a five-year, $70 million contract with former All-Pro pass rusher Robert Quinn and a one-year deal with former Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman Germain Ifedi.

The Bears were looking to boost their pass rush and blocking coming off a disappointing year.

Quinn had 11 1/2 sacks last year following a trade to Dallas from Miami despite a two-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy against performance enhancers.

He finished with single-digit sacks the previous four seasons for the St. Louis and Los Angeles Rams, and the Dolphins.

Ifedi made 60 starts at guard and tackle over four seasons for Seattle.
