3. Buster Skrine

The Chicago Bears first move of the offseason was to sign Buster Skrine, officially ending the Bryce Callahan era in Chicago. Recently it was announced that the Chicago Bears added two more years to his deal, decreasing his overall cap hit.

It is clear what this signing meant. They had a line in terms of a ceiling dollar amount why saw Callahan being worth. They did not cross that line and instead brought in a player that would fit into their cap spending plan.

The question now is how much of a drop off is Skrine from Callahan? Skrine is coming off of a down year for the Jets but it is fair to note that he is going from a terrible pass rush to an elite front in Chicago.

There is potential that the drop off will not be quite as significant as some could think. Adding in the savings in salary with the upgrade in scenery for Skrine and it is not a depleting drop off.
