Free Agent Targets for the Bears

dabears70

I am Ryan Pace
Its a small sample size but from what I saw in the playoffs I like Bush in the "Don't Screw It Up" Amos role.

With a stacked front seven along with Eddie Jackson they really don't need a big money guy at the other safety spot.

Kinda like a cheap SLB playing beside Urlacher and Briggs back in the Lovie days.

If i had to choose out of signing only one of Amos or Callahan i'm signing Callahan and going with Bush or DHC playing with E.Jackson at S which i've already said a few times on here. We have plenty of talent on that defense to not need a guy like Amos. D.Bush played well in his limited time playing for E.Jackson and i like DHC and think if the guy could just stay healthy he would be able to show he can play.

It looks like Jackson is going to get HUGE money.

You may, and probably are, right that they have a set budget for the guy beside him.

I do not think the bolded guys are going to be cheap enough.
you asked for under the radar or cheap signing.
fowler jr is not a name i'd expect media to link with the bears given his antics...

anyway if its for cost then ray and ware for OLB and RB, both guys have injury issues and should be cheap.

Shane Ray is an edge player that interests me. I am not sure of his market, but coming into a team as the 3rd rusher on a 1 year deal and try and rebound his value.

Aaron Lynch did it this season. Lesser role, but was very good as the 3rd OLB and probably earned a multi year pay day on another team.

You think Lynch is too expensive for us? Would you sign him to a multi-year contract?

Ray had lesser stats for similar snap count:
Ray: 297 snaps, 1 sack, 1 FF, 1 TD, 1 PD, 10 tackles, 1 QBhits, 44 ST snaps.
Lynch: 366snaps, 3 sack, 1 Int/PD, 16 tackles, 4 TFL, 8 QBhits, 13 STsnaps.

I think Lynch earned another year with Bears, but not sure about a multi-year, but whatever the market is.

Lynch had to many lazy plays, the dude didn't finish his job at times.

Sure lynch stats looks good...that's because Mack pushed plenty of plays his way into lynch.

Yes, I think he is going to get a multi year deal for 5/season.

I have been a Shane Ray fan since the draft.

He has for the most part either been stuck behind Miller/Ware or injured...

There is a lot of upside to be had - would love for him to be Lynch's replacement.
