This former Chicago Bears superstar has a new NFL homeVincent Pariseon May 31, 2022 at 9:40 pm

It has been pretty clear for a while now that Akiem Hicks was not returning to the Chicago Bears in 2022. He has been a superstar-level defensive lineman for a long time and has been a part of a very good Bears pass rush. Even though the writing was on the wall, there was still hope.

Now, that hope is gone as he has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He went from playing on a pretty bad Chicago Bears team over the last few years to singing with a team that is a legit threat to win the Super Bowl.

Hicks has spent the last six years with the Chicago Bears. Before that, he spent parts of four seasons with the New Orleans Saints along with a cup of coffee with the New England Patriots. It has been an outstanding career for him and he is looking to finish strong.

He will have a chance to win himself a championship ring with the Bucs. They have been in contention ever since Tom Brady left the New England Patriots to go there. He retired for a minute there but then announced that he wanted to come back.

Former Chicago Bears star Akiem Hicks is taking his talents to Tampa Bay.

Brady was elite last season but they fell short in the playoffs to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams. In two years with Tampa, Brady has either won the Super Bowl or been defeated by the team that went on to win the Super Bowl. It has been amazing.

It is clearly a solid destination for a player like Hicks. With the Bears, he knew what it was like to be a part of an elite defense with elite players around him. Now, he is going to get back to that with some of these guys in Tampa Bay.

When people think of that team, they might think of Brady’s offense, and rightfully so. However, that defense is outstanding and they deserve credit for the way that they play. They wouldn’t win if they didn’t have it.

With Hicks as a part of their pass rush for the year, they are going to be able to cause some problems. The New Orleans Saints are going to be pretty good but they probably won’t be as good as Tampa and the rest of the division is just bad. Hopefully, if it can’t be the Bears, Hicks is able to have some winning success in 2022.
