Chicago Bears Mock Free Agency: Ryan Poles bolsters trenches with big-ticket signings

We’ve made it, Bears fans. Free agency unofficially begins with the two-day negotiation window, which opens Tuesday, March 13. The new NFL league year officially begins on March 15.

We’ve seen a lot of 2023 mock drafts in recent months, so let’s try something a little different and conduct a Chicago Bears mock free agency; a look at what the next week or so could look like if GM Ryan Poles maximizes his spending power.

For this mock, I’ll pick a handful of free agents that I think Poles is likely to sign, whether or not I agree with the move. As a reminder, this is only Poles’ second offseason as a GM, and his first was spent trying to shed bad contracts. As a result, we don’t have an idea yet of his modus operandi.

For instance, I don’t believe Poles will target Orlando Brown Jr., despite his accolades. His subpar athleticism has historically been an Achille’s heel for Brown, and his asking price may be too rich for Poles. I think Poles is sold on Braxton Jones as his starting left tackle for at least one more year. But I could be wrong.

With that said, on to the mock (free agency edition).
