What the Chicago Bears can learn from the Chiefs, Eagles as they enter critical offseason

The NFL is a copycat league. Teams that win, and win consistently, generally lay the blueprint for present-day success. For a club amid a massive rebuild like the Chicago Bears, taking notice of what’s made the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles so successful is a worthwhile endeavor.

The Bears can go from last place in the NFC North in 2022 to a competitive, if not a playoff-worthy team, in 2023. They’re loaded with offseason assets in free agency and the 2023 NFL draft to level up the talent on the roster around quarterback Justin Fields and make a legitimate push for the NFC North next season.

General manager Ryan Poles must be careful not to become reckless in his second year on the job. It’s his first offseason that will focus on roster building; last year was more about deconstructing the team his predecessor left him.

Here are a few key lessons he can take from the Chiefs and Eagles’ success as the 2023 offseason quickly approaches.
