Time for some bold predictions regarding the Chicago Bears and the 2020 offseason. Who may be cut, who will be back and how many new faces will emerge through free agency and the draft?

The Chicago Bears are at a crossroads right now. Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy must be open and honest with one another when talking through their plan for the 2020 NFL season. The front office has plenty of decisions to make after a rough 2019 season that led to an 8-8 record. What will Pace do regarding the quarterbacks room? How about tight end, safety, offensive line and more?

While looking over the roster, I would not be shocked if the team does little to nothing this offseason. The team will clearly make moves, but I would not expect some blockbuster signing or trade. The team does need to do something though. Ryan Pace will need to look to free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft to bring in some strong and fast skill position players.

One thing stood out for the Chicago Bears on offense in 2019. Without trying to lay blame on one player (talking to you anti-Trubisky people), the Bears offense lacked explosive plays. This could be due to Trubisky not hitting some of his deeper throws. This could be a lack of blocking up front that caused Trubisky to have to throw too soon or that could not open any holes for David Montgomery. Without pointing the finger though, the team needs to find more help offensively.

How can Pace and Nagy do that you ask? Well, here are five bold predictions I have that could shake this team up for the 2020 season. Please note, these are bold, but still possible. I am not going to throw out the idea that the Chicago Bears trade away Khalil Mack for Joe Burrow or some nonsense like that. I want these to be actually attainable, even if some are highly unlikely.
