Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears made their first unofficial move on Monday by agreeing to terms with a veteran tight end.

The first day of the NFL’s legal tampering period was a wild ride — not for the Chicago Bears, but a wild ride, nonetheless. We saw some massive trades and rich deals agreed upon within just hours of the day getting started.

One of the most talked about transactions will be the Houston Texans agreeing to send arguably the league’s top wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for David Johnson. The Cardinals included a second-round pick and both teams swapped fourth rounders as well.

While the entire football world was left scratching their heads over such a bizarre move, Ryan Pace and the Bears stood pat for a few hours.

More trades and contracts were agreed upon throughout the day, and still, the Bears didn’t do much of anything. For a little while, there was some excitement around the Bears and Teddy Bridgewater, but that ultimately died down.

It wasn’t until later in the afternoon and early evening that the Bears made their first move. To say the least, it was a bit of a surprise.

Pace agreed to terms with veteran tight end Jimmy Graham, who was recently released by the Green Bay Packers. The 33-year old comes to the Bears at a time where they are starved at the position, but was Graham the answer? I provide my immediate reactions to the deal.
