Cohen agrees three-year contract extension with Bears

Chicago Bears reach 3-year extension with RB Tarik Cohen

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the Bears and running back Tarik Cohen have actually had "fruitful discussions" about an agreement extension. Over $9.5 million is guaranteed, and with $1 million in incentives, the contract could be worth up to $18.25 million.

The Bears have signed RB Tarik Cohen to a three-year contract extension.

Cohen, who has two career touchdown passes, became the shortest player (5-foot-6) since 1934 to throw an National Football League touchdown pass when he fired a 21-yard scoring strike as a rookie in 2017. And the simple fact is he's a better running back than Cohen.

In total he has amassed over 4,000 all-purpose yards having also thrown two touchdown passes.


Mostert had 772 rushing yards and 180 receiving yards in the regular season a year ago, then added 336 rushing yards in the playoffs. In 2017 he became the shortest player (5-foot-6) since 1934 to throw an National Football League touchdown pass, and in the same year he became the first rookie since Gale Sayers in 1965 to score a rushing, receiving, passing and punt-return touchdown.

Robinson, 27, is in the final season of a three-year contract he signed as a free agent with the Bears in 2018. His production dipped past year with 213 yards rushing and 456 receiving.

So, after seeing Cohen's extension, the 49ers have to feel even better about Mostert's contract situation.
