What free agents would you like to see Bears target in 2022? Will have a lot of $ come off the books. Will be a crucial offseason to build right team around Fields.

I'd love to see them address oline again and if arob isn't resigned they need to address wr as well. Realistically they probably need a 2nd reliable TE who is more complete to replace Graham too.

Edit: sorry I didn't give names, but that is what I see as pressing to get the offense where it needs to be for fields

This depends what happens with Robinson, but the Bears are likely going to be in the market for a WR1. It's really to soon to tell as alot of the FA's in 2022 could be franchise tagged or sign an deal over the course of the year.

Looking at the available WRs tho - I think they have to go after Godwin if he is available. I'm guessing he is not though.

There is not much available currently for WR1's. Bears really need to find a way to convince AR to stay.

Michael Gallup could be a decent get for cheaper than the big names. I don't really love him. Jim Miller and pat Kirwan were saying he is wr1. I think that's pretty questionable

Would be interesting. He's talented for sure. We will see what happens with Mooney this year also. I would think the Cowboys would cut Cooper and re-sign Gallup though.

can get good WRs for pretty cheap, i'm on side of get multiple solid WRs on good deals. opposed to spending a lot on just one. draft a WR too haven't had high drafted WR in forever. i'd rather allocate $ towards OL and solid TE.
luxury of Fields also might be getting free agents to Chicago on cheaper deals than they would've got offered elsewhere. if he shows out this year and looks like he'll be a stud, guys will want to come play with him.

I don’t think the Bears can spend big on defense. They are already heavily invested even in 2022 and they have deals for Nichols and Roquan to hand out.

The money should go to offense.

WR will need a major investment.
OL either in free agency or the draft
UTE, in free agency as the draft takes too long

The Bears have space but not a ton.

Robby Anderson is a WR that I would look into if Robinson leaves. Same size at 6’3” but Anderson is a deep threat and not as good in other areas.

Price plus speed would be positives for me.

Davante Adams is the top of the WR class, then Robinson and Godwin. After that there isn't much that interests me as far as WR go, and I am not a huge Godwin fan so really Adams (too much) or Robinson who's all but gone..

Going big I like Ramczyk like Enasic said and really big, Taylor Morton

They could upgrade tight end with Kmet and CJ Uzomah from Cincinnati, good blocking tight end who can catch

If Darnell Mooney really develops into that speedy deep threat, it would be ideal to hang on to Robinson, or if we had to replace him, replace him with a WR with a skillset closer to Robinson imo.

The franchise tag and extensions will likely pick the top guys off the market like Ramcyk who would be my clear cut #1 target.

The rest of the OL free agents are solid.
WR is probably Godwin and then a bunch of #2 guys.

Signing Rzmcyzk and letting Daniels walk would make me tingle

Ramcyzk
Borom/Draft Pick
Mustipher
Whitehair
Jenkins

That would be something.

A lot of money coming off the books but we lose some pretty serious talent at positions that will need to be filled to be able to be competitive next year. 2022 season is a long way away.

Pace will continue building the team via FA by spending heavily on WR (assuming Arob leaves) and CB.

Aren't both Ramczyk and Armstead FAs for NO? Will they be able to bring both back?

WR if no ARob.
D.Adams

W.Fuller
JuJu
DJ Chark
C.Sutton

Edge to replace R.Quinn.
C.Jones

JPP

CB to replace Trufant.
S.Gilmore
C.Harris
P.Peterson

SS to replace Gipson.
K.Neal
Q.Diggs
T.Gipson


I think Hicks can be replaced by Nichols and Edwards but if they do wanna get one then J.Allen would be a nice addition.

Still can't believe Pace signed Trevathan to that contract but would like to find a way to move on from him after this year.
