Bears acquire OL Ryan Bates from Bills for fifth-round pick

The Buffalo Bills are trading offensive lineman Ryan Bates to the Chicago Bears for a fifth-round pick in the 2024 draft.

The deal is pending a physical and will become official when the new league year begins March 13, the Bills announced Monday.

Bates, 27, played the first five seasons of his NFL career with Buffalo. He has seen action in 73 regular-season games, starting 19, along with nine playoff games (four starts).

Bates was the Bills’ starting right guard for 15 games in 2022 before restructuring his contract and moving to a reserve role last year. His contract lasts through 2025.
