Concluding why the Chicago Bears need Adetomiwa Adebawore

After the draft the Bears should sign defensive end, Justin Houston and cornerback, Marcus Peters to one-year contracts. Houston is 34 years old, had 9.5 sacks in 2022, and played for Eberflus in Indianapolis. The Colts acquired Justin Houston as a free agent after the 2019 NFL draft. The Bears have signed three younger pass rushers and could use Houston in a rotation so his older legs don't get worn down in the latter part of a game. He could also be used a lot on third-down plays. This could, possibly get the most out of him for at least one more year.

Marcus Peters is 30 years old and has been a ballhawk during his seven-year career. He started slowly in 2022 but regained his form as the season progressed. This slow start was due to his recovery from an ACL tear that happened during the 2021 season. Peters should have at least one more good year in him and will likely settle for a one-year contract.

Both can drastically help the Bears' defense during the 2023 season. Then these players can be replaced with the Bears' two first-round picks in the 2024 draft.
