Bears are signing former Broncos LB Danny Trevathan, per source.

This really isn’t surprising. Best wishes to Trevathan.
I am trying to get some other work done at the office, but I will do what I can to update this page, assuming Nick doesn’t do it first.
ETA: Tweet should be correct now. As you can imagine, this has been a hectic day.
UPDATE (Nick): (8:10 PM MT) I originally cited an Ian Rapoport tweet “roughly” putting Trevathan at $7M APY, but Adam Schefter has clarified that downward:
LB Danny Trevathan’s deal with Bears totals $24.5M over four years and includes $12M guaranteed.

As I thought, that puts Trevathan at a pretty clear 5th round compensatory pick value for 2017. However, he is currently being cancelled out by the acquisition of Donald Stephenson.
