Chicago Bears offensive line among NFL’s cheapest in 2022

The Chicago Bears’ offensive line is viewed as one of the team’s biggest question marks entering the 2022 season. Simply put, it’s unsettled. Several starting jobs remain up for grabs, and the candidates competing for them don’t have a long resume of success in the NFL.

General manager Ryan Poles didn’t completely ignore the unit during the offseason, however. He used free agency to sign a new starting center in Lucas Patrick, and he used four draft picks — albeit day-three picks — on offensive linemen. But if the Bears’ offense comes undone in 2022, the lack of any significant Investment in the line will likely be the reason.

The Chicago Bears will begin the year with one of the least expensive offensive lines in the NFL, ahead of only the Pittsburgh Steelers, who rank dead last despite signing former Bears guard James Daniels in free agency. The Bears ranked 29th in offensive line spending in 2021.
