Albert Wilson Should be First Free Agent to Sign with Chicago Bears
Matt Nagy may be bringing Albert Wilson with him to Chicago.
The Chicago Bears need help at wide receiver. This is the most obvious statement anyone has ever said about the current Bears’ roster. With a new coaching staff, led by former Kansas City Chiefs‘ offensive coodinator Matt Nagy, it seems that the Bears understand that their offense needs a massive overhaul, not just with personnel, but with philosophy.

Nagy will be installing a brand new offense with the Bears. Brad Childress has come along as a consultant because he knows this offense and will help install it and teach it to the roster. But wouldn’t it also help to have a player that knows the offense as well? Enter Albert Wilson.
Wilson has been a solid performer in the Chiefs’ offense for the last couple years, and many label him as a wide receiver with tremendous upside but struggled for targets behind the likes of Tyreke Hill and Travis Kelce. Wilson could come to Chicago and be an instant upgrade over just about anyone they have on the roster (minus potentially Cameron Meredith), plus have the knowledge and experience of Nagy’s offense to not only help himself but help teach the rest of the offensive players as well.
So while Wilson is the obvious fit in Chicago, will he be headed to the Bears?
That enough smoke? Basically, the entire league right now sees Albert Wilson headed to Chicago (including his own GM). That would be a good start for Ryan Pace in free agency. Based on last year where the Bears really struggled to land any of their main targets, getting someone like Wilson right out of the gate to take some pressure off needing to land someone to help the wide receiver situation.
Plenty can happen between now and the opening of free agency, but it certainly appears like Wilson could be headed to Chicago.
