A crazy thought regarding free agency signings the Chicago Bears could still make

You will not find many fans who think the defensive line of the Chicago Bears has been updated enough from the 2022 season to now. Obviously, the team addressed the interior of the line in the 2023 NFL Draft. Selecting Gervon Dexter in the second round and Zacch Pickens in the third round was a statement that the interior pass rush needed improvement. Signing Andrew Billings as the big space eater should help in the run game. The problem is, the edge has not been addressed enough in most fans' and analysts' opinions.

What everyone thinks the Chicago Bears should do to solve the problem is where the discrepancy comes into play. Some believe the Bears should sign a veteran pass rusher, but then you have to throw multiple wanted names into the mix. Others believe the Chicago Bears should trade for a pass rusher. Chase Young of the Commanders keeps being mentioned the most it appears.

When it comes to free agent pass rushers, the names I have seen mentioned the most by fans and analysts alike include Yannick Ngakoue, Frank Clark, Justin Houston, Leonard Floyd and Jadeveon Clowney. At this point, I am hoping Ryan Poles looks to free agency for help on the edge instead of sending away draft capital -- unless that draft capital is very minimal. However, I had a crazy thought.

The Chicago Bears could get crazy with their defensive end position

Alright, here it goes. What if the Chicago Bears signed two of these free-agent defensive ends? The team cannot have enough talent and adding the likes of Yannick Ngakoue along with Justin Houston instantly propels the defensive end position. The team still needs to spend a decent amount of money before the end of the season, why not put two of these proven veteran ends together? Trevis Gipson can go back to being a rotational guy while sophomore edge rusher Dominique Robinson can also continue to learn and grow as a backup.

At this point, you'd have to think that Ryan Poles and the Bears could sign at least one, if not two, of these guys to a short-term deal. Both of them don't need to be one-year deals, but maybe two-year deals instead? Is this too crazy of an idea? At this point, I just want to see at least one signed.
