LAKE FOREST Zach Werenski Jersey , Ill. (AP) — Nose tackle Eddie Goldman and the Chicago Bears have agreed to a four-year contract extension through the 2022 season.
A second-round draft pick out of Florida State in 2015, Goldman has started 32 of the 36 games played and has 8 1/2 sacks and 15 quarterback hurries.
The Bears announced the move Friday.
General manager Ryan Pace calls it a “key extension for the future of the Bears.” He says Goldman is an “anchor” for the defense and “has put the work in every day to earn this opportunity.”
The Bears open Sunday at Green Bay in coach Matt Nagy’s first game.
Chicago is expecting more after four straight last-place finishes in the NFC North thanks to some major moves in the offseason. The Bears signed former Jacksonville Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson and boosted their defense last weekend by acquiring two-time All-Pro Khalil Mack from Oakland.The San Francisco 49ers have signed offensive lineman Laken Tomlinson to a three-year contract extension through the 2021 season.

”Laken is a very talented player who has improved consistently since joining the team one week before last year’s season opener Titans Game Jerseys ,” 49ers general manager John Lynch said. ”This offseason, his hard work and dedication paid off as he continued to progress and performed at a high level. We were confident we could work out a contract extension with Laken and we are fired up to get that done before training camp.”
The 26-year-old Tomlinson was a 2014 All-America lineman at Duke.
