#72-William Perry

Tenure: 1985-1993

You may think that “The Fridge” is only on this list due to his popularity and novelty, but after researching all the stats, he actually is the greatest #72 in Bears history. He had 28.5 sacks and over 450 tackles during his time in Chicago and as I’m sure you remember, he could run the ball if necessary. And let’s certainly not forget that he’s no dumb cookie.
