2. The Bears reunite with an old pass-rushing friend ...

... and that friend is Leonard Floyd! You thought it was going to be Khalil Mack, didn't you? Sorry. Floyd has turned into quite the pass-rusher since leaving Chicago: he's now a Super Bowl champion, and 39 of his 58 career sacks have come from his time in Los Angeles and Buffalo. He's had at least nine in each season after he left the Bears; his season-high in Chicago was seven. He'll be a free agent this season, and his defensive line coach in Buffalo is now the Bears' new defensive coordinator. Plus, at 31, it seems like he's entering that late-stage Yannick Ngakoue/Jadeveon Clowney career path of lucrative one year deals every offseason. The Montez Sweat trade helped what was one of the worst pass-rushing units in football, but the Bears still need help there.
