By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Chicago Bears have re-signed running back Tarik Cohen to a contract extension early Sunday morning. It’s a three-year extension.

Cohen was set to become a free agent at the end of the 2020 season. With this extension, the 25-year-old will not see the free agent market until at least the 2023 season.

He is scheduled to make $2.1 million this season. Now, with this extension, next season, he could make $5.75 million per campaign.

Cohen is receiving $17.25 million in new money. It could potentially be worth $18.25 million if he reaches all incentives. That means he could potentially receive $6.093 million per year.

The team has $9.533 million in fully guaranteed money, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. He could potentially max out at $12.033 million in guaranteed money.

Cohen was a fourth-round pick by the Bears in the 2017 NFL Draft. The North Carolina native had seven carries for 41 yards in the team’s season opener against the Detroit Lions.

He also had two receptions for six yards.

In three-plus seasons, Cohen has appeared in 49 games, including 22 starts. He has had 257 carries for 1,068 yards and five touchdowns.

In addition, he also has 205 receptions for 1,540 yards and nine touchdowns.
