The Chicago Bears brought these four free agents in for a tryout

The Chicago Bears season is less than three weeks away. As of now, all signs point the season being on track to start without a problem. That said, we all know that teams are looking for certain insurance policies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Matt Nagy himself has said it numerous times in his press conferences. In fact, the team recently signed Cairo Santos to be the “backup” to Eddy Pineiro. Pineiro is dealing with a groin injury, but Nagy said the team will likely keep two kickers.

If I am being honest, I wish this article was to tell you that the Chicago Bears brought in the likes of Marshawn Lynch, Devonta Freeman or Isaiah Crowell for a tryout. Although David Montgomery’s groin injury is not as severe as first thought, I have been pounding the table for established running back depth for quite some time. Sorry to those who believe in Artavis Pierce, but I do not feel comfortable trusting an undrafted free agent out of Oregon State to be the main guy.

Yeah, this means I am not comfortable with Ryan Nall to carry the load either. Unfortunately, that is not what Ryan Pace did this week. That said, I am intrigued by at least one name on this list. Could the Bears make a big-name splash in free agency this close to the season starting? The team brought in three players for another position I have been calling weak when depth is concerned and apparently the Chicago Bears are concerned as well.
