Roquan Smith reportedly ends hold-out, joins Bears

The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with first-round pick Roquan Smith, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The former star Georgia linebacker is guaranteed 18 million over four years.

The eight overall pick in the 2018 class, Smith had held-out from joining the Bears becoming the last unsigned rookie in the NFL.

Smith’s holdout was reportedly over language in his contract that would allow the team to reclaim guaranteed money if the linebacker is suspended under the NFL's new helmet-contact rules.
