The term “free agency frenzy” applies well to the Chicago Bears and their approach to the open market over the last week or so. General manager Ryan Poles has opened the checkbook for several players — nine, to be exact — who will all pay dividends in 2023.
Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds is the big get, but he isn’t alone in the newcomers who will help reshape the Bears’ lineup. TJ Edwards (LB), DeMarcus Walker (DL), and Andrew Billings (DL) round out the defensive upgrades, while Nate Davis (OG), D’Onta Foreman (RB), and Travis Homer (RB) are quality additions on offense. And don’t forget about the trade that acquired DJ Moore from the Carolina Panthers. He, alone, will change the entire dynamic on offense.
But for all the upgrades Poles has made, there’s still a lot of work to do. He’ll use the 2023 NFL Draft to add foundational pieces to the Chicago Bears roster, and now that many of the key free agent signings are already in place, it’s worth running a three-round mock draft to see what kind of haul the Bears might pull.
Let’s get after it.
