Bears: 3 late free agency targets Chicago should consider

The Chicago Bears took a huge step back after a 10-6 campaign in 2018. They dropped to third in the NFC North with an 8-8 record in 2019. Entering the 2020 season, the Bears are not strong at quarterback and that could push the entire process back.

Mitchell Trubisky turned in an unimpressive season with 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 15 games. The Bears’ feelings towards Trubisky were made clear when they sent a fourth-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars in return for Nick Foles. The Bears could do Trubisky a lot of good by strengthening the team around him, on both sides of the ball.

Chicago added tight end Jimmy Graham in free agency, then drafted Cole Kmet out of Notre Dame. They signed Artie Burns and Jordan Lucas in an attempt to keep their defense playing at a high level. The Bears will have to continue to improve if they want to keep up with the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.

Now that the free agency period and draft are mostly complete, here are three names that the Bears could still sign.

  1. You say, “If the Bears have the flexibility to sign Freeman, this is the No. 1 move they could make.”
    Do a little research, the Bears are tighter against the cap than they have been since *before* they hired Ryan Pace.
    Not so bold prediction, Montgomery has more yds from scrimmage than Freeman this year.
