After finishing as the worst team in the NFL this season, the Chicago Bears are fully in offseason mode. Ryan Poles and company must focus on which players to sign and draft and what moves to make to either add veterans or extra draft picks via trade.

Chicago Bears will be an active participant in 2023 free agency

The Bears currently have about $120 million at their disposal in free agency. Now, with the number one pick in their possession, Chicago will almost certainly be active this offseason.

For the Bears, and every other team that missed the playoffs, the offseason has started. But 14 teams are still competing to hoist the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season.

As NFL fans alike sit back and watch the playoffs unfold over the next month or so, we will not only get to watch some of the most talented players in the league, but we will get to see the play of some high-end 2023 free agents.

As the playoffs roll on, there are numerous, talented players on each team who may hit the open market. They will become available either due to age, lack of scheme fit, or just because there is not enough money to go around for everyone.

While enjoying the playoffs in the next few weeks, here is one player from each team to keep an eye on that the Chicago Bears could sign once the free agency period officially begins.

Free Agents from the Number 1 seeds

Kansas City Chiefs – Orlando Brown, OT

Starting his career as a right tackle, Brown left the Ravens for the Chiefs with the promise that he would play (and be played) as a left tackle. While he has shown that he is better served on the right side of the line, the Chicago Bears could offer him the long-term contract he desires after playing in 2022 under the franchise tag. Next to Teven Jenkins, these two could form a physically dominant duo on the right side of the line of scrimmage.

Philadelphia Eagles – Javon Hargrave, DT

A full-time starter this season for the Eagles, Hargrave accumulated 11 sacks and 10 tackles for loss. A Pro Bowl snub this season, Hargrave is a consistent playmaker from the interior of the defensive line. He has been a difference-maker for both the Eagles and Steelers throughout his career. At the age of 30, Hargrave has good seasons remaining in front of him and could help a Bears defensive line rebound from a struggling unit to a productive front.
