RB D’Andre Swift Signed By Chicago Bears for 3 Years

According to agent Trevon Smith at Athletes First, the Chicago Bears have sealed a three-year contract worth $24.5 million for running back D’Andre Swift, with $15.3 million guaranteed, as confirmed by ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday.

Last April, the Philadelphia Eagles orchestrated Swift’s move from the Detroit Lions in exchange for a 2025 fourth-round pick and a swap of seventh-round picks, marking a return to his hometown for the Philadelphia native.

Swift, aged 25, saw a surge in his career during the past season, setting personal bests in rushing attempts (229) and yards (1,049), earning himself a debut Pro Bowl appearance.

Remarkably, Swift maintained good health throughout the season despite the increased workload, participating in all 16 regular-season games – a feat that marked his best performance since entering the league in 2020.

Although his rushing statistics saw significant growth, his receiving numbers experienced a decline, as the passing game predominantly targeted receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, along with tight end Dallas Goedert.

Nevertheless, Swift’s performance placed him among a select group of just six running backs who achieved both 1,000 rushing yards and 35 receptions.

Having been drafted in the second round from Georgia, Swift has accumulated 2,729 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns over four seasons, complemented by 1,412 receiving yards and eight touchdowns through the air.
