The 2016 season is coming to an end for the Chicago Bears and it has been an interesting season. The 2017 Free Agency period will see some well-known Bears up for new contracts. Who will be a free agent and should they be re-signed?
The 2016 season has been a tough one for the Chicago Bears. Injuries have been the biggest issue and this has stretched their depth been beyond its limits. They have gotten to the point the roster is nearly unrecognizable from opening day. Is this unusual? Yes, it is. It’s also tough for a team to overcome this kind of loss.
Some say give the Bears’ coaching staff another year to put things together while others are calling for both John Fox and Ryan Pace to be let go. There is no consensus on what Bears’ management should do.
But one thing that this for certain is the Bears must make some personnel decisions this off-season to improve this club. And they will have many decisions to make.
We are going to look at the players on the Bear’s roster, on offense, who will become free agents this off-season. We will look at their value, what they could do for the Bears in the future and finally, whether the Bears should bring them back or let them go.
If you have opinions about the Bears’ potential free agents on offense, please say something in the comments.
NOTE: An exclusive rights free agent is a player that has no more than two accrued seasons in the league. This player can only sign with their previous team if that team extended a minimum qualifying offer to that player.
