- Ian Rapoport reported earlier that the Redskins are “very interested” in Paea.
Paea, 26, is another free agent who could walk away with a very respectable contract, even though he hasn’t generated a lot of news since entering the NFL back in 2011.
Last year, he appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 33 tackles, six sacks, two forced fumbles and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 11 defensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players.
We have Paea listed as the No. 38 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
