Chicago Bears: 5 Free agent targets still available
By Evan Bruner
Chicago Bears Free Agency: Isaiah Wynn, OL
Taking Darnell Wright tenth overall in this year’s draft dramatically improved the outlook of the Bears' tackle situation. They now have two starting-caliber tackles to go with a solid interior offensive line.
Still, the team currently has far more guards than tackles on the roster and they are only an injury away from having to play one of those guards on the outside. Although many would call Braxton Jones’ rookie season a success, it shouldn’t stop the Chicago Bears from exploring other options at tackle going forward.
A former first-round draft pick, Isaiah Wynn was once a highly-coveted prospect thanks to his athleticism and upper-body strength. Unfortunately, things never materialized in New England. Between injuries and lackluster play, Wynn didn’t receive a second contract from the Patriots.
This presents a low-risk candidate for the Bears. Wynn still has the same traits that once made him an exciting prospect, and the less-than-stellar on-field product makes him highly affordable.
It would be irresponsible for the Bears to go into the 2023 season with so few true NFL tackles. Regardless of your feelings on Wynn as a player, it’s hard to deny the 27-year-old would add some nice depth to Chicago’s line.
