While the signing doesn’t scream star power, it does signal a philosophy shift. Blasingame is a fullback, a position that isn’t used in every offensive scheme. This narrows down what scheme new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy plans on running. The Chicago Bears haven’t had a major permanent fullback since Jason McKie.

Blasingame comes from the Tennessee Titans. He played in 32 games over the past three years. He is a solid target out of the backfield, averaging 9.7 yards-per-reception. On the running side, he was paired with star running back Derrick Henry, so he blocked most of the time. Since he’ll be paired with a downhill runner like David Montgomery, fans should expect more of the same.
