In conclusion, the Bears free agent class is not one of the better ones they have had in their long and storied history. They have found players that have consistently underachieved, been injured or haven’t been able to find starting roles on their former teams. Demps seems to be the best of the bunch but he’s getting up there in age and doesn’t have much time left. Cooper is interesting and could be the surprise of the group. Wright and Bryant are nice but can Glennon get them the ball?
Glennon is hard to figure out. Although he has played in the NFL, his ability is still a mystery. Can he be the starting quarterback the Bears’ brass thinks he can be? Will he at least earn his lofty paycheck? Can he keep the seat warm while the Bears develop another quarterback?
This free agent group could make or break Pace. If these guys don’t perform well then Pace is not going to look good in the eyes of his peers, players and Bears management. But Bears management has been good at letting poor performance go unnoticed so they may let Pace get by with this one. But who’s to say that Pace is going to fail. As Bears fans, we can only hope for the best.
You never know, this free agent class may surprise us and put forth strong and productive efforts. As a Bears fan, it would be nice for all of them to succeed. But the numbers are against them. If their trends continue then they won’t do well. But maybe a fresh start in Chicago will help some or these guys.
We will find out and we will see just how good of a talent evaluator Pace really is.
