Among those signed were wide receiver Freddie Swain, tight end Tommy Sweeney, wide receiver John Jackson, cornerback Leon Jones, defensive tackle Dashaun Mallory, and linebacker Paul Moala. Swain brings experience to the Bears with 38 catches for 502 yards and six touchdowns in 33 games for the Seahawks in 2020 and 2021. Sweeney played in 24 games for the Bills between 2019 and 2022 but missed last season after collapsing during a training camp practice while with the Giants.
