According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN, Tarik Cohen has been extended for 3 years with a contract averaging $5.75 million/year. There are some incentives that can increase the value of the contract to a max guaranteed value of $12 million. The gadget back is a versatile weapon for the Bears with 2500+ rushing and receiving yards since being drafted in 2017 and making a probowl in 2018 as a return specialist. His 16 career TDs even include 2 as a passer. Cohen, aka the human joystick, was a 5th round pick out of North Carolina A & T and became an internet sensation prior to the draft with this video.
