Summary

Tarik Cohen was third in the entire NFL with 104 running back targets last season. However, Cohen's shiftiness and big plays waned to the tune of 5.8 yards-per-catch, fewest of any back with at least 50 targets. Cohen had a strong edge over rookie David Montgomery in passing game usage (69 more targets) and Cohen had the second-most targets on the entire Bears offense, behind only Allen Robinson. Cohen has yet to see 100 rushes in a season through three years and more concerning is his drop in receiving efficiency as his biggest perk as a sub-sized back. Any rise by David Montgomery in the receiving game paints a dicey picture of Cohen's upside and utility for the Bears offense. (April 28)

Bears | Tarik Cohen near new deal (Sat Sep 19, 12:50 PM) - Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen and the team are close to agreeing on a contract extension and it could get done Saturday, Sept. 19, following a week of 'fruitful discussions,' according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Our View: A fourth-round pick out of North Carolina A&T in the 2017 NFL draft, Cohen has worked well as a receiving back and change-of-pace back for the Bears. He's not in line to get huge money, so it will be interesting to see what kind of contract the team puts together.
