While I said there are going to be no big names, Schwartz is the bigger fish that Chicago could potentially reel in. To be fair, this is a 31-year-old right tackle fresh off a season-ending back injury. There is a chance that he is physically done, or the best is behind him, to say the least.
Still, even if Schwartz has one more redemption season or 10-15 strong games in him, it could be worth the price. We are talking about one of the best right tackles in the NFL over the past five years or so. The Chicago Bears may not expect to get that, but they could get average to above-average play from a trusted veteran.
This move makes sense in the way that Peters does, and it comes back to coaching. Schwartz knows Matt Nagy well, and Nagy comes off as a very likable person. When he was coaching there, the word was that the offense rallied around Nagy.
Schwartz is going to find a new home where he is comfortable. Reuniting with Nagy and heading to a scheme that he would at least understand would be a start. If Russell Wilson were the QB, Schwartz would be even more tempted to come.
