Freeman recorded nine tackles, five of which were solo, Thursday against the Patriots.
With the Patriots calling quite a few running plays, Freeman was quite busy, and was easily the Bears' leading tackler in this contest. As long as he stays healthy, it's very reasonable to expect the veteran to reach triple-digit tackles this season.
Freeman intercepted a pass and recorded one tackle Thursday against the Broncos.
Freeman showed his excellent range by pursuing a broken play all the way to a sideline, and he ended up being in the right place when Bryce Callahan tipped a pass in the air, resulting in the interception. The veteran projects to be a high-volume tackler for the Bears in defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's scheme, and he's a solid player to target in IDP leagues.
Jerrell Freeman agreed to a three-year deal with the Chicago Bears on Saturday.
Freeman fought through multiple injuries last season and was still able to break the 100-tackle mark for the third time in his career. He'll join a Bears inside linebacker corps that was barren last season and should be expected to start, so good tackle numbers should again be in his future.
