Roster Move: Bears sign third-round pick Kiran Amegadjie


The Bears on Tuesday signed third-round draft pick Kiran Amegadjie, an offensive tackle from Yale, to a four-year contract.

The 6-5, 326-pounder started all 24 games he played the past three seasons at Yale, opening 10 contests in 2021 and 2022 before a quad injury that required surgery limited him to four games last season.

Amegadjie was named First-Team All-Ivy League each of the last two years at left tackle, allowing no sacks on 411 pass blocking snaps. In 2021, he was selected Honorable Mention All-Ivy League after starting 10 games at right guard.

Amegadjie grew up in the Chicago area as an avid Bears fan. He attended Hinsdale Central High school, joining the football team as a sophomore and helping the Red Devils win 25 games in his final three seasons.

With the 75th pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, the Bears select Yale offensive lineman Kiran Amegadjie. Take a look at photos of Amegadjie in action.

Amegadjie is the second of the Bears' five draft picks to sign a deal, joining fourth-round punter Tory Taylor. The three remaining unsigned picks are first-round quarterback Caleb Williams, first-round receiver Rome Odunze and fifth-round defensive end Austin Booker.

Check out the action from the Halas Hall practice fields, where 43 players – including the Bears' 2024 draft class – participated in a pair of rookie minicamp practices.
