Roster Move: Bears agree to terms with TE Gerald Everett


The Bears on Wednesday agreed to terms on a two-year contract with tight end Gerald Everett, pending a physical.

Everett, 29, has appeared in 107 NFL games with 46 starts through seven seasons with the Rams (2017-20), Seahawks (2021) and Chargers (2022-23). He has accumulated 2,833 receiving yards, 284 receptions and 19 touchdowns throughout his career.

The South Alabama product was selected by the Rams in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. New Bears offensive coordinator Shane Waldron worked with Everett throughout his career in Los Angeles while he was the Rams' tight ends coach (2017) and passing game coordinator (2018-20).

Everett's production steadily increased during his time with the Rams. He went from 16 receptions and 244 receiving yards as a rookie to 41 receptions and 417 yards in his fourth season. 

Waldron and Everett both joined the Seahawks in 2021 when Waldron became Seattle's offensive coordinator. Everett played in 15 games with 12 starts, totaling 48 receptions, 478 receiving yards and a career-high four touchdowns. 

The veteran spent the last two seasons with the Chargers – where he overlapped with new Bears receivers coach Chris Beatty – and posted the best numbers of his career in 2022, totaling 555 receiving yards, 58 receptions and four touchdowns.
