Bears Free Agency Preview: It’s Jakobi Meyers or bust at wide receiver

The Chicago Bears have several holes to fill in free agency this offseason, ranging from the offensive and defensive lines to playmakers on offense to support quarterback Justin Fields.

The good news is general manager Ryan Poles and the Bears have the most money to spend in free agency. There will be little competition for Poles’ first, second, and even third free-agent choices once the signing bell goes off.

Wide receiver has become a costly position to upgrade in free agency, but the Bears may not have much choice but to sign one of this year’s available veterans. The 2023 NFL Draft has some quality prospects Chicago can target on Day 2, but they’ve been down that road over the last few years with selections like Anthony Miller (2018 draft) and Velus Jones (2022 draft). Miller is no longer on the team, and Jones’ rookie season left much to be desired.

One veteran who should rank high on Poles’ offseason wish list is New England Patriots receiver, Jakobi Meyers.
