Chicago Bears should sign: Matt Feiler, OL – one year, $4.1 million

Although they found a potential future offensive line group, the one thing they do lack is depth. The Bears are most likely losing Bobby Massie, Germain Ifedi, Jason Spriggs, and possibly Charles Leno Jr. Bringing in more depth for the line will be necessary, even if they stress this position in the draft.

Matt Feiler has been a pleasant surprise for the Steelers over the last couple of years, and his versatility provides added value. He is a veteran that would come in and provide depth at both guard and tackle, as he has played both positions interchangeably over the last couple of years. He has been healthy for the most part, besides an injury this past season. He could provide great competition for a starting job on the line, especially if the Bears do lose a lot of their depth.

He is also very disciplined, committing only seven penalties in his last three years. Not only could he provide great depth, but he would be a great leader amongst a young group of linemen with guys like James Daniels and Sam Mustipher still learning, along with potential rookies. Getting Feiler on a one or two year deal, as he is only 28 right now, could be a great addition to the offensive line as a plug and play starter.
