The Chicago Bears could add any one of these free agents in 2021

There are a few other free agent quarterbacks the Chicago Bears could add this offseason.

Tyrod Taylor

What about bringing in Tyrod Taylor this offseason? Taylor won his only game he finished in Week 1 of the season for the Chargers. He did not play that well, but it was also his first game in a new system on a new team in a year without a preseason. His season came to an end after a team doctor punctured his lung. Yikes.

Taylor has shown some success throughout his career and would be a solid veteran addition to the Bears should they focus more on the draft to upgrade their quarterback position.

Jacoby Brissett

Another option the Chicago Bears could look to add is Jacoby Brissett. Brissett, like Taylor, has had some success in the NFL. Brissett finished the 2019 season with a 7-9 record as the starting quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts. Brissett threw for 2,942 yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. Just like Taylor, Brissett cannot be the answer and should only be added if the contract is short and cheap.

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Another free agent option, and probably the best option of these three is Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick will not win this team a Super Bowl, but he should bring some excitement to the offense. When he gets hot, he can take over a game. The problem is he has just as many flop games as he does great ones. You essentially get two quarterbacks with Ryan Fitzpatrick — Fitzmagic and Fitztragic.
